#Smearforsmear this National cancer awareness week

The campaign aims to ensure every woman knows how they can reduce their risk of the disease and the steps they can take to look after their health.

What you can do?

  • Attend cervical screening when invited
  • Know the symptoms of cervical cancer and seek medical advice if concerned
  • Take up the HPV vaccination if aged 11-18
  • Talk to friends and family to ensure they know how they can reduce their risk
