Cervical Screening Awareness Week
Cervical Screening Awareness Week (19-24 June 2023) is an annual event run by Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust.
The aim is to encourage all women to have regular cervical screening and provide information and reassurance regarding any concerns about taking the test. Regular screening is important as it is one of the best ways to protect yourself from cervical cancer.

Why are screening tests important?
The UK has a national screening programme, which uses data collected over the years, to be able to detect changes in your body. This increases your chances of early diagnosis or give you peace of mind.
As Dr Jessica Baron, Hormone Health Associate, explains:
“Screening tests are as much a part of keeping ourselves healthy as diet and exercise. They are designed to alert us if anything is out of the ordinary so we can make an effective plan. These tests let you know what is happening in your body so you can make informed lifestyle decisions.”
