Join us in lobbying politicians around the UK and asking them to focus their efforts on increasing the uptake of cervical screening in your local area.

Ask your MP/MSP/AM to support Cervical Cancer Prevention Week

Cervical Cancer Prevention Week (20 – 26 January) is our annual campaign which raises awareness of how cervical cancer can be prevented. We’ll be holding drop-in events for politicians in Scotland and Wales to find out how they can help. There are also ways for politicians in England to get involved. Ask your MP/MSP/AM to support the campaign!

You’ll need to find out who your MP/AM/MSP is (details on how to do this are below), and find their contact email address.

Dear NAME OF MP

I live in your constituency at (INSERT ADDRESS) and I support Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust, the UK’s leading cervical cancer charity.

During Cervical Cancer Prevention Week (20-26 January), they will be launching a campaign that will focus on raising awareness of, and tackling myths around, HPV as well as informing the public about the important change to HPV primary testing in the cervical screening programme.

I am passionate about the need to raise awareness of the importance of screening as well as tackling misinformation around HPV so that more women feel comfortable and able to attend their tests and so we can get closer to making cervical cancer a thing of the past. 

I would be grateful if you could show your support for Cervical Cancer Prevention Week with your local newspapers, on your website or on social media by tweeting the following:

  • HPV can be confusing, but there shouldn’t be any shame or stigma around it. I’m supporting @JoTrust and #SmearForSmear to smear the myths and get the facts out www.jostrust.org.uk/smearforsmear 
  • Smear tests aren’t always easy but they can prevent cervical cancer. This week join #SmearForSmear to help @JoTrust smear the myths and get the facts out: jostrust.org.uk/smearforsmear

Thank you for your support.

Yours sincerely,
