Cervical Cancer and Smear tests

During Cervical Cancer Prevention Week, we want to remind you how you can reduce your risk of the disease. You should be invited for cervical screening every 3 years if you have a cervix and are between 25 to 49 years old and every 5 years if you are between 50 and 64 years old. Women are usually born with a cervix.

Trans men, non-binary and intersex people may also have one.At BHWC we run a trans health hub and we have additional processes in place to ensure we invite our male patients who may have a cervix. 

You may be unsure whether the pandemic means attending your cervical screening is a priority, well yes, it is! We are still carrying out smear tests and we would encourage you to attend if you have received an invitation. The easiest way to book your appointment is online using systemonline or via the airmid app. If you do not know your login details you can request them here
