Cervical Smears

Cervical smears are currently recommended for women between the ages of 25 and 64 who have ever been sexually active. In this region, there is an efficient computerised recall system which is set at three or five-year recall. If you receive a letter inviting you to have a smear or need one for some other reason please make an appointment with a nurse or doctor. Be sure to say the appointment is for a smear in order that sufficient time can be allocated and so that a chaperone can be organised where appropriate.
