Cervical Screening Awareness Campaign

Starting on the 27th of June and lasting for six weeks, public health Wales are commencing a social media campaign that aims to raise awareness of the importance of cervical screening for everyone with a cervix. A cervical screening test is now conducted by the practice nurse every five years (increased from three) and if no high risk HPV is found then you will be re-called in five years' time for your next screening. For anymore information, please don't hesitate to contact the surgery, or use the helpful links below for further information.
