Cervical Screening

IS YOUR CERVICAL SCREENING UP TO DATE?

Are you aged 25 to 74 and have not had a Pap test in the last 2 years?

The two yearly Pap test for woman aged 18 to 69 has been replaced by a five yearly human papillomavirus (HPV) test for woman aged 25 to 74. Woman are due for their first Cervical Screening Test at the age of 25 or two years after their last Pap test. This change has a number of benefits including:

1.A more accurate Cervical Screening Test has replaced the Pap test
2.The time between tests has now changed from two to five years
3. The age at which screening starts has increased from 18 years to 25 years, or two years after the last Pap test if the Pap test was done at the age of 23 or over
people aged 70 to 74 years will be invited to have a Cervical Screening Test.
