Cervical Cancer Awareness Week

8th – 14th March 2021

Sam Calder, Medicus Lead Nurse says “we are here to help and support, please attend our clinics for a smear test, we have dedicated Saturday morning slots at Carlton House – it only takes 5 minutes, and it might save your life”

  • Cervical cancer accounts for 2% of all new cancer diagnosis in women, which equates to over 3000 cases each year.
  •  .Women aged 30-34 are the most commonly effected age group.
  • 8% of cervical cancer can be prevented and having regular cervical smears is an important part of this.
  • Cervical Smears detect early changes to the cervix which could become cancer – allowing it to be treated before cancer develops.
  • The HPV only protects against 70% of cases of cervical cancer – so cervical screening is still important if you have had the jab.
  • Smears are normally every 3 years for women aged 25 to 49 and every 5 years for women age 50 to 64.

If you think you may be due a smear test please contact your GP today who can confirm if you are and book you in!
