New Scottish Cervical Screening Campaign

A new campaign has been developed to grab the attention of young women aged 25-35, and start breaking down some barriers to attending.

DON'T IGNORE YOUR NEXT SMEAR INVITE AND IF YOU MISSED YOUR LAST SMEAR TEST, CONTACT YOUR GP PRACTICE TO FIND A TIME THAT SUITS YOU.

BOWEL SCREENING

All men and women aged 50–74 are invited for bowel screening. Bowel screening involves taking a simple test at home every two years.

We strongly encourage you to take this simple test. In Scotland the screening programme will prevent at least 150 deaths from bowel cancer each year
