Cervical smears are recommended every 3 years for ages 25-49 and every 5 years for ages 50-65. The test is quick and painless and can pick up very early changes in the cervix which are easily treated and which could otherwise eventually become cancerous.

NHS Health Check
NHS health checks are being offered to people aged between 40 and 74 every five years. The check is to assess your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, kidney disease or diabetes. If there are any warning signs, then together we can do something about it.
The check should take about 20-30 minutes and is based on straightforward questions and measurements such as age, sex, family history, height, weight and blood pressure. There will also be a simple blood test to measure your cholesterol level.
Following the check, you will receive FREE personalised advice about what you can do to stay healthy.
