If you’re a woman or person with a cervix aged 25 to 74, your best protection against cervical cancer is regular cervical screening. You now have the option to screen either by a self-collected vaginal sample or a clinician-collected sample from the cervix – both are still accessed through a healthcare provider. To find out more about the self-collection option, join us at our free webinar with Beth Chigwada who will chat to us about:
- Why cervical screening is important
- What is the self-collection option and how do I access it?
- Is a self-collected sample as effective as a sample taken by my GP?
- Who should have cervical screening?
- What should you do if the idea of cervical screening is triggering?
