Cervical Screening Project

Ealing GP Federation are running a pilot with the Royal Marsden Hospital project team to increase the number of women in Ealing who attend cervical screening.  All practices have been invited to join and we have information about the project on our patient information screen in reception.

We will be ringing all our patients who are due a cervical screening and offering an appointment either here at the surgery or at the Ealing hub practices if a weekend appointment is more convenient.

Our staff making the calls have been trained by Jo’s  Cervical Cancer Trust and they have some excellent  information about cervical screening on their website https://www.jostrust.org.uk/
