Cervical Cancer Screening

Available to all women with a cervix aged 25-64.

  • Patients aged 25-54 will automatically receive an invitation every 3 years. 
  • Patients aged 55-64 will automatically receive an invitation every 5 years.

The first two invitation letters in a cycle are automatically generated; the first 6 weeks before your smear is due, and a second to non-responders 18 weeks later. The surgery will send a third and final invitation a further 14 weeks later. If you do not want a smear, please do not just throw your invitation in the bin; please help to save us time by letting us know as soon as possible - by telling us you won't receive another letter for 3 or 5 years.


If you have received a letter in the previous 3 or 5 years - but ignored it - you are still eligible for a smear. Please speak to Reception to book.


If you have had a smear test in the previous 3 or 5 years, you are not yet eligible for a repeat smear. Any tests which do slip through at the surgery will be rejected by the laboratory without being tested.
