Cervical Screening Week (smear)

17.06.2024 – 23.06.2024

What is Cervical Screening/Smear?

Cervical screening is also known as a smear test. The screening usually takes place at your GP Surgery with a Practice Nurse. The procedure only takes up to 1 minute but, you should allow at least 20 minutes for your appointment in case of any delay and to allow the nurse to answer any questions you may have.

The result can take up to around 4 weeks and will be sent direct to you via a letter.

Did you know?

Surgeries can more often than not organise ‘Out of Hours Appointments’, this is also known as extended access. The service is put into place with a range of clinicians to help you have better access to appointments (evenings and weekends).

If you are putting your screening off due to work – DON’T. Call your Surgery and ask for an extended access appointment :)
