Cervical Smears

Nurses generally take smears at this surgery by appointment. Smear tests are an examination of the neck of the womb (cervix) to check for changes which occur before cancer develops.

These simple tests are recommended for all adult women, with a few exceptions. If you are in doubt, or have worries about this test, please have a word with the nurse or doctor.

Reminder letters are sent out when smears are due.
