Cervical Smear Tests

The NHS Cervical Screening Programme aims to reduce the number of women who develop cervical cancer and the number of women who die from it. There are a number of factors that may increase your risk of developing cervical cancer, and this includes being sexually active. Having a smear test does not mean you are at risk of cancer, but it is an important step in identifying any unusual cell changes early on. If necessary, treatment can be started straight away to prevent cancer developing.

The national cervical screening policy is as follows:

  • Woman aged 25 to 49 are invited for cervical screening every three years
  • Woman aged 50 to 64 are invited for cervical screening every five years

When your smear test is due you will receive a letter from your local Primary Care Trust or GP asking you to make an appointment. The screening test is best done in the middle of the menstrual cycle (between periods).

We can offer morning, afternoon or evening appointments with any of our practice nurses.

Influenza Vaccinations

Flu Jabs

Flu is a highly infectious illness, which spreads very rapidly by coughs and sneezes from people who are already carrying the virus. The virus circulates every winter, usually over a period of a few weeks, so that a lot of people get ill around the same time. The flu jab is the best protection against the virus. You can get a free flu jab if you are:

  • 65 or over
  • living in an old people’s home or nursing home
  • are over 6 months old and have a long-term (chronic) condition such as a heart problem, asthma, kidney disease, diabetes, have a lowered immune system due to disease or treatment such as steroid medication or cancer treatment

If you have a serious allergy to hens’ eggs, you shouldn’t get vaccinated. If in doubt, ask one of the practice nurses.

Healthy people don’t need to be vaccinated; for most people flu is uncomfortable but not serious.
