This page is aimed at primary and secondary care professionals who are planning an information stand. It may also be useful if you are planning a stand for your workplace or community group.
Information stands can be a helpful way to educate the general public about cervical screening, as well as encourage any questions.
Information stands are simply a table or other surface with lots of printed information patients can take away and perhaps chat about with you. If you have access to a tablet or laptop, you can also offer information digitally.
We suggest setting up a stand that looks bright and colourful, perhaps with bunting, balloons and posters. You might like to offer refreshments, such as tea and cake, as part of the stand. Some surgeries have even had speculums and brushes available for patients to see and touch.
