Cervical Cytology

The smear clinic runs on the last Friday of every month with our nurse. Alternatively you can book with a GP.

Women aged 25 - 50 years are called every 3 years for screening and women aged 50-65 are called every 5 years

A new video that shows women what to expect when they attend for cervical screening has been produced by the Public Health Agency.  It covers the complete screening journey including the invitation, the smear test, laboratory processing, results and attendance for colposcopy. The video is primarily aimed at women attending screening for the first time aged 25, as uptake is lower in this age group.  It is hoped this will promote informed choice among women about attending for cervical screening and seek to reassure those who are called for colposcopy.

The video is on the Northern Ireland Cancer Screening Programmes website at the following link:
