CervicalCheck programme report 2012-2013

(04 Mar 2015)

The CervicalCheck programme report (1 September 2012 to 31 August 2013) is now available and contains screening statistics for the fifth year of operation and an overview of the first five years of operation.

The overall aim of CervicalCheck is to reduce the incidence of cervical cancer by detecting changes in the cells of the cervix before they become cancerous. In the first five years since the programme launched on 1 September 2008 until 31 August 2013, over 1.65 million CervicalCheck smear tests were provided with more than 875,000 eligible women having had at least one free smear test.

With an eligible population of over 1.1 million women aged 25 to 60, CervicalCheck has the potential to reduce mortality from cervical cancer by as much as 80 per cent in the screened population.
