Well Woman & Cervical Screening

Led by the Practice Nurses.

The practice is fully involved in the national computerised screening programme. We recommend a smear every 3 years for sexually active women between the ages of 25-49 years and every 5 years for women aged 50-64 years. You will receive an invitation or reminder from Bromley Primary Care Trust who will also send out the results of your smear. Appointments can be made with the practice nurse for screening. A smear test is best done in the middle of your menstrual cycle (between periods), so you need to book your appointment accordingly. General checks are carried out and health promotion advice given. Cervical smears can be carried out routinely by any of the doctors or nurses on a three yearly basis for the early detection and prevention of cervical cancer.
