Cervical screening checks a sample of cells from your cervix for certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV).
These types of HPV can cause abnormal changes to the cells in your cervix and are called “high risk” types of HPV.
If these types of HPV are found during screening (an HPV positive result), the sample of cells is then checked for abnormal changes. If abnormal cells are not treated, they may turn into cervical cancer.
You can find out more about the screening on the NHS website
We run a cervical smear clinic at Mossley Hill every Monday. However, Mossley Hill patients can be seen in Edge Hill on alternate days. Please call to enquire.
