Cervical screening is routinely offered to women and anyone with a cervix in Scotland between the ages of 25 and 64.
Women on non-routine screening (where screening results have shown changes that need further investigation or follow up) will be invited up to 70 years of age.
The cervical screening test (smear test) is designed to check your cervix (neck of the womb) for the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV).
If HPV is found, we’ll then look at the same sample for cell changes. HPV causes 99% of all cervical cancers.
Run by a nurse - please book at reception

Screening aims to find bowel cancer at an early stage in people with no symptoms. If detected early there is a 90% chance of treating it successfully.
Please see your GP if you have any abnormal symptoms such as bleeding from your bottom or with your stools, recent persistent change in bowel habit, abdominal pain, weight loss or pallor.
