Public Health works to create a supportive environment for women and trans or non-binary people with a cervix to participate in cervical screening.
It is estimated that about 90% of cases of the most common form of cervical cancer could be prevented with regular smear tests every three years.
The cervical screening programme targets all women and trans or non-binary people with a cervix between the ages of 25 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:
• Support around accessing screening
• Advice about the importance of cervical screening to individuals and community groups
