Cervical Cancer Prevention Week 2023

This week is Cervical Cancer Prevention Week.

It is estimated that…

  • 1 in 3 women and people with a cervix do not go to their cervical screening appointment.
  • 2 lives are lost each day to cervical cancer.
  • 9 people are diagnosed each day with the disease.
  • 75% of cervical cancers can be prevented by attending a smear test.

HPV vaccinations, cervical screening and treatment for cell changes all help to prevent cervical cancer!

A smear test lasts 5 minutes, but the impact of cervical cancer can last a lifetime.

If your smear test is due, please call the practice today to book an appointment.
