Cervical Cancer Prevention Week 2022

Cervical Cancer Week banner

Did you know 1 in 3 women and people with a cervix do not attend their cervical screening?

This week is Cervical Cancer Prevention Week, organised by the JoTrust to raise awareness of cervical screening.

Cervical screening (commonly known as a ‘smear test’) can stop cervical cancer before it starts and save lives. The test doesn’t have to be scary.

The Jo Trust has brilliant resources and support on their website. This includes details on Cervical cancer symptoms and tips on how to reduce your risk 

Do you want to know what to expect during your cervical screening? The NHS has also produced a helpful video walking you through an appointment with a nurse at a local GP practice.
