Keeping you safe at your cervical screening appointment

Taking part in screening is something you can do to look after your health.

Healthcare staff follow infection and prevention control guidance. This means staff follow strict hand cleaning routines and clean all clinic areas and equipment regularly.

Talk to someone in your doctor’s surgery about how screening will take place within your surgery. They will explain what they are doing to keep you safe at your appointment.

Contact us if you:
  • Have any questions or concerns about cervical screening.
Contact your doctor’s surgery if you are worried about:
  • Your cervical screening appointment.
  • A change in your health. Do not wait to be invited for screening.

More information about screening and the different tests.

Remember, to stop the spread of infection, do not attend for screening if you are unwell.
