Public Health works to create a supportive environment for women to participate in cervical screening. 
 
It is estimated that about 90% of cases of the most common form of cervical cancer could be prevented if women had smear tests every three years.
 
The cervical screening programme targets all women between the ages of 20 and 70 years who have ever been sexually active and who have not had a cervical smear in the last three years. Screening can be free (conditions apply).
 
Public Health's work includes:
• Supporting women aged between 20-70 around accessing screening
• Providing advice about the importance of cervical screening to women and community groups
