The lowdown on cervical screening podcast

Posted on: Wednesday, 11th May 2022 by Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust team

Over the last few years, cervical screening attendance has been falling in Scotland and almost one in three women and people with a cervix don’t attend. It's not always an easy test so we’ve teamed up with Capital FM Scotland on a new podcast series sharing tips and experiences. Joined by the amazing Katy J (Capital Scotland’s DJ) we spoke with a Consultant in Gynaecology, a Practice Nurse and four women about cervical screening, colposcopy and screening results.

Check out the podcast or watch the videos below – New podcast released bi-weekly so stay tuned!

Episode 1: Lorna, a cervical screening nurse

Lorna is a practice nurse in Glasgow. She shares the importance of a cervical screening and what to expect when you go!
