Cervical Smears

This is an important test to look for early changes on the cervix (neck of the womb) that may need treatment before they proceed to more serious inflammation and / or possibly cancer of the cervix. It is really the only test available that can predict and treat a problem before cancer develops.

 

Women who are sexually active or have ever been in the past and are aged between 24-65 years are routinely called up for a cervical smear test every 3-5 years.

 

We have women doctors and nurses at the practice who are happy to perform the test for you. It must be done whilst you are free from bleeding if you are still having regular periods. The procedure takes about 5-10 minutes and is usually painless. We are now using the new method of smear preparation and detection called Liquid Based Cytology (LBC) which has the advantage of reducing rates of inadequate smears thus reducing your anxiety and the results are more reliable and returned more quickly.

 

If you are happy to book a smear test or wish to discuss any aspect of the procedure first, please telephone the surgery on 0844 576 9808 during surgery hours, so that we can arrange a convenient date and time for you.
