Jo's free resources to help you support and inform your patients

Colposcopy nurse supporting a female patientJo’s Cervical Cancer Trust offers a variety of services designed to help support all women who need it, from those who are worried about cervical screening all the way through to those facing a terminal diagnosis.

The below services are available to all women no matter their situation. Signposting the women you engage with to them may help them to feel better supported or calmer. Equally these services can help to support you with your busy workload. 

Helpline

Our freephone Helpline offers women support and information from volunteers who have had personal or professional experience of cervical cancer or cervical abnormalities, and have had training in telephone helpline skills. The vast majority of the calls we receive on the Helpline are about HPV and cervical screening. This shows that women being dealt with in colposcopy are often in need of support, reassurance and information, and signposting them to our services could be very beneficial for them.

Online forum

Our moderated forum provides a safe space for women, their partners, friends and families to come together to share experiences, get advice, and seek and provide support to each other. We have forum discussion groups on many different topics around cervical screening, HPV and abnormalities, which may be relevant to the women you interact with.

Ask the Expert

Our Ask The Expert service allows women to ask specific questions related to all aspects of HPV, vaccination, cervical screening and abnormalities. Questions are answered by our volunteer medical panellists, who are qualified experts that have the skills to answer the questions asked by our users. The service is completely confidential.
