Antenatal

As soon as you are aware that you are pregnant, make an appointment with the doctor who will take a history and carry out some general health checks before referring you to a local hospital of your choice. You will be given a shared care programme enlisting subsequent antenatal care. You will be seen regularly throughout your pregnancy either at the practice or at the hospital.

Cervical Smears

WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR SCREENING?

Age Group (Years) Frequency of Screening
25 First invitation
25 - 49 3 yearly
50 - 64 5 yearly

The NHS call and recall system invites women who are registered with a GP. This also keeps track of any follow-up investigation and, if all is well, recalls the woman for screening in three to five years time. It is therefore important that all women ensure their GP has their correct name and address.

Women who have not had a recent cervical test may be offered one when they attend their GP or family planning clinic on another matter.

WHY ARE WOMEN UNDER 25 AND WOMEN OVER 65 NOT INVITED?

Invasive cancer is rare in women under 25 but changes in the cervix are common. This means that younger women may get an abnormal result even when there is nothing wrong.

Minor Surgery

Minor operations can be done in our treatment room. Please discuss this with your doctor who will then arrange for you to be given an appointment.
