If you’ve had your invitation to attend a smear test, but can’t get to your GP practice during the week, Canvey Island PCN is now holding cervical screening clinics on the first Saturday of every month.
Patients registered at any of the six practices on Canvey can book an appointment with a nurse at one of our clinics, which take place on the first floor at the Canvey Primary Care Centre.
Book an appointment by contacting your GP practice and asking about the Saturday cervical screening clinic.

Cervical screening (smear test)
Cervical screening is a free health test available on the NHS as part of the national cervical screening programme. It helps prevent cervical cancer by checking for a virus called high-risk HPV and cervical cell changes. It is not a test for cancer.
