This short video will inform you about the National Cervical Screening Service. Cervical screening is routinely offered to anyone with a cervix in Scotland between the ages of 25 and 64, every 5 years.
Cervical screening (a smear test) involves taking a sample from your cervix (neck of your womb) and examining it for a virus called HPV. You’ll have the test at your GP surgery. The test usually takes no more than 5 minutes. Due to Covid-19, staff will be wearing extra protection, including face coverings, and you will be asked to wear one too. If you have any symptoms of Covid-19, you must not attend your appointment.
