Cervical screening aims to prevent cervical cancer. We know that more women than normal have not attended for their screening tests during the Covid-19 pandemic for various reasons.
If you have received a letter asking you to come in for a screening test it is very important that you DO attend. Staff will be following strict guidance on infection control to protect you and themselves. You won’t be able to take someone with you to your appointment and the results may be delayed so talk to your doctor or the nurse about what to expect or any concerns you might have.
