The cervical screening test (smear test) is designed to check your cervix (neck of the womb) for the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV).

If HPV is found, we’ll then look at the same sample for cell changes. HPV causes 99% of all cervical cancers.

Cervical screening can stop cervical cancer before it starts


Cervical screening is routinely offered to women and anyone with a cervix in Scotland between the ages of 25 and 64.

Women on non-routine screening (where screening results have shown changes that need further investigation or follow up) will be invited up to 70 years of age.
