Bassetlaw GPs urge women to follow smear test advice as uptake falls

"Our findings suggest that, implemented in a flexible and culturally sensitive way, HPV self-testing could be very acceptable for Māori women who find current screening unacceptable".

The Tennessee Department of Health (TDH) is launching an aggressive cancer prevention campaign during 2019.

Theresa May was asked to back the "life-saving" tests during PMQs to protect other women from developing cervical cancer.

Ms Maclean said: "Ten years ago I had a cervical smear test that picked up some abnormalities which if they had been left untreated could have developed into something much more serious".

If you are aged between 25 and 49 you will receive an appointment every three years, aged between 50 and 64 every five years and if you are above 65 you will only be screened if you haven't had a smear test since the age of 50 or have had recent abnormal tests. The study, which looked at pap smear test results of 36,100 women who attended gynaecology clinic at the hospital between January 2011 and December 2016 also found out that some younger women in the 35-39 age group too had advanced disease. In South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw, around one in four women do not attend their routine cervical screening appointment. This has meant that the take-up of screenings is at just 61 per cent among 25 to 29-year-olds in England, and 69 per cent for 30 to 34-year-olds.

It could be the reminder or encouragement someone needs to book their test.

As the Shadow Minister for Public Health, I work closely with charities, health professionals and the public to raise awareness of cancer symptoms, so that cancers can be diagnosed early, in order to improve the effectiveness of treatment. However, the "Jade Goody effect" seems to have now passed and screenings are at a 20-year low. For instance, in March 2012, Delphi Bioscience Asia Pvt Ltd introduced a home based HPV test kit for making the detection procedure of cervical cancer more convenient for the women in Singapore and other Asian economies.

Burnley MP Julie Cooper has thrown her support behind Cervical Cancer Prevention Week. This is a very common infection but only leads to disease in a small number of infected individuals.
