According to national guidelines we operate a recall system for women aged between 25-65 years old.
Cervical Smears are done by both the doctor and the practice nurses. Please ensure the reception staff know when you book your appointment so that extra time can be allowed in surgery.
Our policy is to test every women aged between twenty five and sixty four years, every three years. Under the new guidelines women aged 50 or over will be recalled every 5 years. (unless the cytologist/consultant recommends repeating the smear more often). Please do not ignore your recall letter.
