Cervical screening is a simple test that checks for abnormal changes in the cells of the cervix. Finding and treating these changes can prevent cancer of the cervix developing.
The NHS offers regular cervical screening to women aged 25 to 64 who are registered with a GP. This test is important if you are a woman or trans man in this age group and:
- have a cervix
- have ever been sexually active with a man or woman.
We run clinics on a Monday and Thursday at Burton Latimer Medical Centre and Thursday mornings at Finedon Health Centre. If you wish to book please call is on 01536 723566.
It doesn’t usually hurt, but you might feel some discomfort. If you are worried or scared about having screening, it may help to talk it through with someone.
