The NHS Cervical Screening Programme has made a significant impact on cervical cancer mortality since it was established in 1988, saving an estimated 5,000 lives a year.
However, coverage is at a 20-year low. Figures published by NHS Digital show that, at 31 March 2018, the percentage of eligible women (aged 25 to 64) screened adequately was 71.4%. The national target for cervical screening coverage is 80% with coverage at its lowest amongst those aged 25 – 35.
To help address this issue, Claremont are working with Public Health England to launch its first national multimedia cervical screening campaign.
If you or someone you know is eligible to for cervical screening make sure they know about this campaign. Share it far and wide so that together we can save lives!
