Cervical check/Smear test

A smear test is a simple procedure that only takes minutes and is the most effective way to detect changes in the cells of the cervix. All women who have ever been sexually active and are between the ages of 25 and 60 yrs are entitled to a free smear test at regular intervals as part of the National Cervical Screenning programme Cervical Check. If you are over 60 years and have never had a smear test you are also entitled to a free test. The purpose of the test is to prevent the occurrence of cervical cancer.
