Screening information

Information about cervical screening, the test, your results and more.

CervicalCheck - The National Cervical Screening Programme

provides free smear tests to women aged 25 to 60.  A smear test is a simple procedure that only takes minutes and is the most effective way to detect changes in the cells of the cervix.


Extension of HPV testing as part of CervicalCheck

From May 2015, women whose smear test shows low grade cell changes will also have a HPV test carried out on the sample. The introduction of HPV testing will help to remove the need for more frequent smear tests for many of these women and will lead to earlier investigation for other women.

For World Cancer Day, when is your next CervicalCheck smear test due?

For World Cancer Day the National Screening Service encourages participation in their population-based screening programmes.
