Smear tests for women involve an examination of the cervix (neck of the womb) to check for changes which occur before cancer develops. We recommend that all women between twenty and sixty-five years of age should have a cervical smear every three to five years – as advised by the Department of Health, unless there is a medical reason for more frequent tests.
Patients wishing to check on their result are asked to wait four weeks for the laboratory to process the test.
