Cervical Smears




We strongly recommend that all women, regardless of their sexual orientation, participate in the cervical screening programme that starts at the age of 25 and ends at 65. Smears can be done by our nurses or doctors. Results are sent to you directly within 2 weeks.

Try not to put off cervical screening. It's one of the best ways to protect yourself from cervical cancer.
