Smear Tests: Ladies Attention!
If you are aged between 25 and 64 you are entitled to regular smear tests under the national cervical screening programme.
Smear tests are designed to reduce the number of women developing and dying from cervical cancer by detecting very early changes that can be simply treated.
Smear tests can be done at the surgery and local family planning and sexual health clinic s.
When was your last test?
Are you up to date?
OK, am I due?
Smears are normally offered every 3 years (every 5 years after age 50).
Please ask at the Reception desk or over the phone if you are not sure when your last smear was.
How do I book a smear test?
If you want to have your smear done at the surgery, we are able to offer you an appointment in private, comfortable surroundings with an understanding practice nurse or female GP.
Please ask about the appropriate time to have this done when booking an appointment.
If you require any further information, or want to discuss the smear test, please speak to your practice nurse or GP.
Please ask at reception for information on how to book an appointment with our Smoking Cessation nurse.
Please make an appointment for travel advice with one of our practice nurses to discuss your vaccination requirements as soon as the trip is planned. Bring any records of previous vaccinations you have had with you please. You will be required to pay a fee for certain immunisations. Please ask the receptionist about this when you book your appointment
