Don’t Ignore your Cervical Screening Invite

Did you know that two women die every day of cervical cancer in England? Yet it is one of the most preventable cancers.

Cervical screening helps prevent cancer by checking for a virus called HPV and cervical cell changes. If left untreated, these cells can develop into cancer.

Screening only lasts a few minutes, and you only have to go once every 3 or 5 years depending on your age.

Don’t ignore your invite letter, and if you missed your last cervical screening, book an appointment with your GP practice now.
