Cervical Screening

Did you know HPV causes 99% of all cervical cancers? Your smear test now screens for HPV. HPV testing is more effective, that’s why if no HPV is found it’s safe to wait 5 years between tests. Visit https://www.nhsinform.scot/healthy-living/screening/cervical/cervical-screening-smear-test for more information.

Did you know that 1 in 2 people who learn they have HPV don't know what it is? We want to see that change, so that fewer people feel confused or worried when they learn that they have HPV. Ready to get the facts with @JoTrust? Visit https://www.jostrust.org.uk/test for more information.
