Screening

Cervical screening

The aim of the NHS Cervical Screening Programme is to reduce the number of women who develop cervical cancer and the number of women who die from the condition. Since the screening programme was introduced in the 1980s, the number of cervical cancer cases has decreased by about 7% each year.

All women who are registered with a GP are invited for cervical screening:

  • aged 25 to 49 - every three years
  • aged 50 to 64 - every five years
  • over 65 - only women who haven't been screened since age 50 or those who have recently had abnormal tests
Bowel Cancer Screening

If you are aged 60 to 74, you will receive a letter inviting you to take part in the bowel cancer screening programme. The letter will include a leaflet, which explains the benefits and risks of screening. You will be invited to take part in screening every two years until you reach the age of 75.  Visit the website
