Cervical Screening

When Will I Have My Cervical Screening (Smear) Test?

All women registered with a GP will be sent a letter inviting them to their screening at different ages/ times.


  • age 25 to 49– then again every three years
  • age 50 to 64– then again every five years
  • over 65– only women who haven’t been screened since age 50 or those who have recently had abnormal tests
