Cervical Smears

Smear tests are carried out by the nursing staff.

Our policy is to test:

  • Every woman aged 25 – 49 years, every three years
  • Every woman aged 50 – 64 years, every five years

The cytologist/consultant may recommend repeating it more often. It may also be appropriate for women outside this age group. If you are unsure, please ask the practice.
