Cervical Cytology (Smear Tests)

The practice recommends that all women between the ages of 25 and 64 should have this simple, painless test every three years.

Our computerised system ensures that all our patients are offered this service. The test plays a vital part in trying to identify those women who may be at risk of cervical cancer, so that curative treatment may be given.

Over the last few years, the number of women dying from this disease in this country had dramatically fallen due to the success of the smear test programme.
