Cervical screening

Cervical screening (a smear test) checks the health of your cervix.

 

​During the screening appointment, a speculum is inserted through the vagina and small sample of cells will be taken from your cervix. The biopsy checks for the human papillomavirus (HPV) that can cause changes to the cells of the cervix. 

If abnormal cells are found you may require a colposcopy or treatment to your cervix from a Gynaecologist  Consultant.
