Cervical Cancer Prevention Week 22 – 28 January 2024

Posted on:

Around 3,200 people are diagnosed with cervical cancer in the UK each year. That’s nearly 9 cases diagnosed every day. Cervical screening can help to prevent cervical cancer, as this screening checks for a virus called high risk HPV. It is this virus that can cause changes in the cells of the cervix, that could go onto develop into cervical cancer.  This means you can get any care or treatment you need early.

Did you know, that in addition to our Monday to Friday appointments, we also hold a cervical screening clinic (smear clinic) once a month on a Saturday. Please check our website for appointments or ask at reception for the next Saturday clinic.  We still have appointments available Monday to Friday.
