Don’t ignore your cervical screening invite

Cervical Screening is carried out to check the health of your cervix, it is not a test for cancer, it’s a test to help prevent cancer.

All women and people with a cervix aged 25 – 64 should go for regular cervical screening. You’ll get a letter in the post inviting you to make an appointment.

The test itself should take less than 5 minutes and is usually done by a female nurse or doctor. This video explains what happens during your screening.
