New smear test campaign launched in Northampton to tackle decline in women getting tested

New smear test campaign launched in Northampton to tackle decline in women getting tested Public Health England has today launched a major campaign in the East Midlands ‘Cervical Screening Saves Lives’, to increase the number of women attending their cervical screening.

The campaign will encourage women to respond to their cervical screening invitation letter, and if they missed their last screening, to book an appointment at their GP practice.

Around 258 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer in the East Midlands each year and around 69 women die from the disease. Northampton Chronicle and Echo
