Cervical Cancer Prevention Week

During Cervical Cancer Prevention Week 2016 we:

  • Launched #SmearForSmear 2016. You can read more about the campaign and what we achieved here
  • Reported on new statistics which showed that almost 3.7 million women aren't attending their cervical screening one and that screening uptake among 25-29 years olds is worryingly low. Coverage achieved included ITV This Morning, Good Morning Britain, Mail Online, Good Housekeeping, Yahoo, The Telegraph and Glamour. In total the campaign generated 467 news pieces across UK papers, websites and broadcast coverage; to read some of the online articles check out our news section. Thanks to everyone who told their story to help raise awareness.
  • Distributed over 100,000 materials promoting cervical screening and cervical cancer prevention to over 900 different GP practices, hospitals, individuals and companies. Thank you to everyone who displayed and distributed our materials throughout January.

We hope this year's CCPW has encouraged and reminded many women to book their smear test and many thanks again to anyone that got involved!
