This week is Cervical Screening Awareness week.

The NHS has recognised that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, a lot of screening services have been disrupted.

We wanted to share a few resources that we hope may be of some help to put your mind at ease.

Below is a link which will take you to a website called Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust, they have a free confidential helpline in which they can provide support for any women who may be anxious about screenings being delayed or just have concerns regarding Cervical Cancer.

The following link will take you to a FAQ from Jo’s Trust which will hopefully answer some of your questions that you may have and give you advice on attending appointments for screenings.

Please note that we are now doing routine smears again at the surgery so if you are due, please contact the surgery to book in for an appointment.
