Information for Practice Nurses and GPs

Practice Nurse talking to patient about smear testsIn this section:

Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust works closely with Practice Nurses and GPs as you play a vital role in helping to prevent cervical cancer through HPV vaccination and the cervical screening programme, as well as helping diagnose symptomatic women and identifying women affected by cervical cancer early. 

In the UK, we are fortunate to have a free Cervical Screening Programme which helps to save around 5000 lives a year. If diagnosed at the earliest stages, 95% of women would survive five years or more [1]. The role of Practice Nurses and GPs is crucial in ensuring that women feel comfortable to attend their cervical screening appointment, which helps to diagnose cell changes (abnormal cells) before they turn into cancer. Identifying symptoms of cervical cancer is also becoming increasingly important.
