Asthma Annual Review Form
All women between the ages of 25 and 65 are regularly invited for a smear test. The system is automated, so as long as you are registered with a GP , you should receive a letter asking you to make an appointment. As a result of research that evaluated the optimal frequency for cervical screening, women are now invited for their ﬁrst test at 25. They are then invited every three years until the age of 49 and every ﬁve years from 5064. From 65, only those who have had abnormal tests are offered another test.
We would like to stress the importance of women attending for smear tests when called to do so. We can pick up early changes and help avoid cervical cancer.
Smears are done by our practice nurses and take about 10 minutes in total. To make an appointment please ring 01942 882950.
