To reduce the risk of cervical cancer, smear tests should be performed every 3 years (unless otherwise indicated by the Doctors) between the ages of 25-65. You will be informed by computerized letter that your smear is due. Smears can be done at the surgery by the nurse and appointments can be made via reception.
If you are between the ages of 15- 25 you can have a free Chlamydia test ... This is done on a urine sample. The results are confidential and can be sent to your mobile phone. Ask the doctors, advanced nurse practitioners or nurses for the test. For more information about Chlamydia and the national screening programme visit www.nhs.uk.
