Cervical Smear

  • NameCervical Smear Tests
  • Additional InformationThere has been a recent change in the national cervical screening policy. We now start doing smear tests at the age of 25 (not 20). This is because in younger people the smear can look odd simply due to immaturity of the cervix and is therefore difficult to interpret. A lot of young people under 25 were called back for further testing and subjected to considerable unnecessary worry. By waiting until women are 25 we can avoid this. The risk of cancer of the cervix is also extremely low in the under 25 age group.

    When your next smear test is due you will receive a reminder by post. This is sent out by Coventry & Rugby Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) on behalf of the practice. Please make an appointment for a smear test with the nurse (or doctor) and, if possible, tell the reception staff what you are coming for so adequate time is allotted.

    Women will be sent for a further test every 3 years from the age of 25 up to the age of 49 and then every 5 years up to and including the age of 64.

    All women will receive the result of their cervical smear test by post. The nurse or doctor who takes the smear should be able to tell you roughly how long the results will take.
  • Requires GP Referral?No
