Cervical smears are performed at the surgery as part of the nationwide screening programme for all eligible and appropriate women. Smears can identify warning signs of cancer around five to ten years before aggressive cancer develops; a smear is not looking for the cancer itself. Screening therefore reduces your chance of developing later cancer of the cervix.
