  • Smear test - important information

    Cervical screening (a smear test) checks the health of your cervix. The cervix is the opening to your womb from your vagina. All women and people with a cervix aged 25 to 64 should be invited by letter. Cervical screening is one of the best ways to protect yourself from cervical cancer.

    If you have received a letter inviting you for a smear test or you think you are due a smear test please book an appointment (020 3049 6600) with our Practice Nurses who will arrange for your smear test. For more information about the smear test, visit the NHS website.

    When you’ll be invited for cervical screening:

    Age When you’re invited
    Under 25 up to 6 months before you turn 25
    25 – 49 every 3 years
    50 – 64 every 5 years
    65 or older only if 1 of your last 3 tests was abnormal

    You will get your results by letter, usually in about 2 weeks (currently maybe longer due to the impact of Covid-19). It will explain what happens next.

    Can I have a cervical screening test during pregnancy?

    You will not usually need to have cervical screening if you’re pregnant, or could be pregnant, until at least 12 weeks after you’ve given birth. This is because pregnancy can make it harder to get clear results. For more information about cervical screening during pregnancy, visit the NHS website.
