WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR SCREENING?


Age Group (Years)   Frequency of Screening

25   First invitation
25 - 49       3 yearly
50 - 64          5 yearly

 

The NHS call and recall system invites women who are registered with a GP for cervical screening. This also keeps track of any follow-up investigation and, if all is well, recalls the woman for screening in three to five years time. It is therefore important that all women ensure their GP has their correct name and address.

 

Women who have not had a recent cervical test may be offered one when they attend their GP or family planning clinic for another matter.

 

WHY ARE WOMEN UNDER 25 AND WOMEN OVER 65 NOT INVITED?
Invasive cancer is rare in women under 25 but changes in the cervix are common. This means that younger women may get an abnormal result even when there is nothing wrong.


Minor Surgery We provide a comprehensive minor surgery including excisions of various lesions, joint injections and cryotherapy.
Blood Pressure Monitoring Regular monitoring checks with our Practice Nurses


 

Non-NHS Services

 

The NHS does not pay for some of the services we provide. These include private sick notes, insurance forms, holiday cancellation forms, medical reports, fitness to travel certificates, private prescriptions, passport signing and some vaccination services. Our fees for these services, which are in line with BMA approved national guidelines, are displayed in the surgery.
