We recommend that cervical smear tests are carried out every 3 years between the ages of 24 and 49, and every 5 years from age 50- 65. In view of the importance of this procedure in the prevention of cancer of the cervix, we make sure that your records are kept up to date. The practice ensures that all eligible patients, are invited to attend the screening.
If your test has been preformed somewhere else (e.g. a Health Centre or Hospital) please inform us in order for us to update your medical records. Your up to date medical records are very important.
Advice and management is given on all types of contraception, i.e. pill, coil, cap, injections, etc. Emergency Contraceptive Guidance Leaflet, can be obtained from the reception area or download above.
