Why no cervical screening for under 25’s?

We frequently get asked this, which is a very reasonable question, especially after high profile and tragic deaths such as the recently reported death of a 19 year old from cervical cancer.

This leaflet explains more.

However, it is very important that If you have symptoms such as bleeding between periods or after sex you consult your GP straight away.
