“Prevention is better than cure, 5 minutes of discomfort is better than years of treatment”

During Cervical screening week, Emma Louise Davies, one of our brilliant GRACE Woman spoke to BBC Surrey about her Cervical Cancer experience, the importance of Cervical Screening Week and why she believes no woman should miss a smear test.

The cervical screening programme, which had been suspended due to COVID-19, has begun to be restored.

There will be prioritisation  for:

– Women invited but not screened and people with a delayed invitation

– Women invited for routine screening (due or overdue)

– Older women – especially for those that it might be their last smear

But anyone who is eligible, due a smear test and asks for it, will also be able get it.
