Don’t ignore your cervical screening invite

If you’ve been invited for cervical screening, we hope you’ll choose to have it.

Cervical screening saves lives because it allows us to find changes in the cervix before they develop into something more serious and before you may have symptoms. It tests for Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), which is the most common cause of cervical cancer. The test is free, takes around five minutes and is offered to women and people with a cervix aged 25 to 64.
