Cervical screening is the best protection against cervical cancer. But, did you know 1 in 5 women and people with a cervix who work say they haven’t been able to get an appointment they can attend?
1 in 4 women and people with a cervix do not attend cervical screening when invited. It can be a difficult test at the best of times, but for those who work, getting an appointment can be an additional challenge. We found that 38% were unable to get a convenient appointment last time they tried to book, and pressures on the NHS as a result of Covid has only made this trickier. But what if you could make it easier?
We are calling on employers to play their part in raising the profile of cervical screening and cervical cancer in the workplace and empower their team to look after their cervical health.
The pandemic has changed working practices for many and as some organisations are starting to look at the ‘new normal’, it’s a perfect opportunity to introduce Time to Test. Whether your team works in an office, the NHS, a factory, a shop, or at home – however you work, flexibility to attend healthcare appointments and making Time to Test is as important as ever.
How can you get involved? If you are an employer or an HR professional, find out more below.
We have created a template email that you can edit and send to your HR team, your internal comms team, your line manager or whoever is best for you to contact. The letter tells them why Time to Test is so important and asks them to join in. You can also add your own text, once you have copied and pasted it to an email, if you have a personal reason for wanting to support. It's a Google Doc so you can easily copy and paste!
