Cervical screening is offered to patients every 3 years between the ages of 25 and 50 and every 5 years from 50 to 65. You will be contacted when this is due and we encourage you to make an appointment with the nurse accordingly. Results will usually be sent to you around 4 weeks after your smear. If you think your smear is overdue you can call the practice and ask reception staff to check.
