This practice actively supports the National Screening Programme and strongly advises patients to attend when they receive an invitation.
Currently, all women between the ages of 50 and 70 years are invited for screening every three years.
Women over 70 can request screening every three years by making an appointment at the local screening unit - but they will not receive an invitation.
From this year the Programme will be extended to include women between the ages of 47 and 73 years. This change will be gradually phased in.
