Cervical screening detects early changes in the cells of your cervix, allowing you to access early treatment to prevent the development of cervical cancer. If you are aged 25 to 49 a smear test is recommended every 3 years, while between the ages of 50 and 64 you should attend every 5 years. Although you may feel a little discomfort during your cervical smear, it is not painful and there is no need to feel embarrassed about the procedure. If you have fallen behind with your smear tests, we can offer you a prompt appointment for screening.
Last year around 450,000 people in England were diagnosed with a sexually transmitted infection. As anyone who is sexually active is at risk of these infections and they do not always have symptoms, routine STI screening is recommended even if you are asymptomatic. When you attend our London sexual health clinic for testing you can be sure that we will treat your results confidentially and if you require treatment for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, syphilis or HIV we can arrange this for you without delay to reduce the risk of lasting complications.
