Cervical Screening Awareness Week

Posted on June 2nd, 2020

Cervical Screening Awareness Week is an annual event which will run from 15th to 21st June 2020. The week aims to highlight the importance of regular cervical screening for women’s health.

Cervical cancer is the most common form of cancer in women under 35 with two women in the UK per day dying from the disease. Regular cervical screening appointments can prevent up to 75% of instances of cervical cancer, saving 5000 lives per year. Despite this, many women are reluctant to have this test done with a quarter of women not responding to their screening invitation. Cervical Screening Awareness Week is organised by the charity Jo’s Trust, a charity dedicated to women affected by cervical cancer or abnormalities.  Cervical Screening Awareness week aims to encourage all women to have regular cervical screening as well as to provide information and reassurance around any fears or embarrassment that women may have concerning taking the test.

Please call us on 01590 672953 if you think you are due for an appointment.
