It is recommended that these be carried out every three years from the age of 25 to 49 and every five years from ages 50 to 64. If you have previously had an abnormal smear you may be asked to have more frequent checks. These are most conveniently performed by our specialist trained nurses in the Well Woman Clinic but if you find these times difficult, please ask at Reception for an appointment with a doctor.
For our 16 to 24 year old patients who are sexually active, this is recommended annually. Either a nurse or doctor can test you or you can ask reception for a kit and test yourself at home.
The services of an experienced Counsellor are available. If you wish to see the Counsellor, please make an appointment to discuss it with your doctor.

Teenage years can be difficult ones and young people often have many worries about themselves or relationships. Please be reassured that your discussion with any of the doctors or nurses will be completely confidential.
