Cervical Screening – Have you had yours?

If you could reduce your risk of getting cancer would you? Well the good news is that you can.. Cervical cancer is largely preventable if you are screened regularly (every 3-5 years)

All women aged 25 to 64 who are registered with a GP are invited for cervical screening.

The test saves 5,000 lives a year in the UK, it takes only a few minutes but the impact of cervical cancer can last a lifetime.
