Cervical Screening

Cervical Screening


A cervical screening test (previously known as a smear test) is a method of detecting abnormal cells on the cervix. The cervix is the entrance to the womb from the vagina.

Detecting and removing abnormal cervical cells can prevent cervical cancer.

What do we offer?
Embrace offers cervical screening testing for any woman who is 25 years old and over, who have received a letter from the NHS Cervical Screening Programme inviting them for their cervical screen.

Booking your cervical screening test 
To book your cervical screening please phone 01902 444444.

If possible, try to book an appointment during the middle of your menstrual cycle (usually 14 days from the start of your last period), as this can ensure a better sample of cells is taken. It’s best to make your appointment for when you don’t have your period.
