Smear clinic - All appointments are with our nurses
Who do we invite?
Women aged 25-49 are invited every three years
Women aged 50-64 are invited every five years
Please do not attend before your smear is due as you will not be able to have your test done early. It is now possible to do your smear test at any time during the monthly cycle apart from when you are having your period.
Smear tests are a very important screening tool and you should make every effort to arrange an appointment to have yours done as close to your review date as possible.
This video explains what you can expect to happen during cervical screening.
Information about cervical cancer and cervical screening
If you're worried about cervical screening or the symptoms of cervical cancer, then this YouTube channel from a national charity gives you more information.
Remember that the smear test is a screening tool that is designed to pick up early changes that may need further action. However, if you're getting symptoms of cervical cancer, you should always make an appointment to see one of our Doctors, even if you've had a negative smear test.
