A cervical smear test is advised for all women over 25 who are, or have been, sexually active. This needs to be done between days 12-18 of your menstrual cycle. ( Day 1 is first day of period).
Age 25 – 49 test every 3 years
Age 50 – 64 test every 5 years
Book an appointment with one of our practice nurses if you receive an invitation, or you think your test is due.
