Smear Test & Cervical Cancer Screening
Cervical smear tests are a quick and simple way to detect early abnormalities in the cells in a woman’s cervix. By detecting changes in cells early, a cervical smear can be the first step in diagnosing and treating cervical cancer. Early detection and treatment may prevent 75% of cancers developing.
Cervical screening is no longer available on the NHS for women between the ages of 18 and 25, but if you fall into this age bracket or any age above - it is still important to get tested regularly. Pall Mall Medical can perform smear testing for women from the age of 18 and above.
We offer a choice of having a smear test with a female Nurse, male or female GP, or a Consultant Gynaecologist. We have convenient city centre clinics located in Manchester and Liverpool with our own private hospital in Newton-le-Willows too.
We respect your privacy and all appointments are made in strict confidence. We aim to get results back to you within 1 week and your results will not be shared with anybody. We have NO waiting lists and appointments are normally available same/next day too with times including early morning and evenings after school or work hours.
The Latest Guidelines
We are proud to be one of the first private clinics to adopt the new guidelines for smear testing in 2019. This means that our private smear tests will also include a screening for HPV (Human papillomavirus) using the same sample (thus no further discomfort). Detecting high risk HPV is associated with an increased risk of developing cervical cancer and therefore this extra test will help to identify women at risk of cervical cancer.
