Colposcopy clinics

CervicalCheck has established a network of quality assured colposcopy clinics for women requiring further investigation following a smear test. A woman can be referred to one of 15 colposcopy clinics located nationwide.

A small minority (two to five per cent) of all women screened will require further investigation or treatment at a colposcopy service.

CervicalCheck-generated referrals for colposcopy should be sent to one of the 15 programme colposcopy services.
