Women aged 25 to 49 are invited to attend for cervical screening every three years; those aged 50 to 64 are invited every five years. Recent figures have shown that 20% of women still do not attend their cervical screen. A cervical screening test or as it is more commonly known, a smear test, is a method of detecting abnormal (pre-cancerous) cells in the cervix in order to help prevent cervical cancer.
