CervicalCheck has recommended a specific colposcopy service: can this be changed?

When a smear test result for a woman carries a recommendation of refer to colposcopy, doctors are advised by letter of a recommended colposcopy service for the referral. The recommendation is based upon the proximity of the practice to a colposcopy service where a woman will receive an early appointment.

If a woman or a doctor wishes to change the colposcopy service, the doctor can use the ‘amend colposcopy referral’ facility in the left-hand panel. The programme will be automatically notified of the change.
