All women under the age of 65 years are entitled to and should have cervical smear tests. A smear test detects cancer of the neck of the womb and is carried out at 3 yearly intervals from the age of 25 – 49 years and 5 yearly intervals from the age of 50 – 64 years. The test is done to help prevent cervical cancer and not to diagnose cancer. Cervical smear tests are performed by our practice nurse.
