We were fully supportive of Cervical Screening Awareness Week from 15 to 21 June 2015.

It is important that women realise that cervical screening can prevent cervical cancer and we encourage women of screening age (25 to 64) to make an informed decision to attend when invited for screening.

Departmental officials regularly meet with Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust to discuss cervical cancer issues, including Cervical Screening Awareness Week. In addition, I spoke with the Chief Executive of Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust following Cervical Screening Awareness Week to reflect on how the week had gone and on future challenges.
