Cervical Screening

If you have received your CervicalCheck letter, please contact reception to make an appointment. 

Cervical screening is a method of preventing cervical cancer by detecting abnormal cells in the cervix (lower part of the womb). Cervical screening is not a test for cancer, but it is a test to check the health of the cervix. The National Cervical Screening Programme, CervicalCheck, provides free cervical screening to women aged 25 to 65.

Cervical screening is a simple procedure that only takes minutes and is the most effective way to detect changes in the cells of the cervix. Most women's test results show that everything is normal. But for one in 20 women, the test will show some changes in the cells of the cervix. In Ireland about 200 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year. It is the second most common female cancer in Europe.

Breast Check

Breast cancer is the most common female cancer in Ireland. About 2,700 women get breast cancer in Ireland each year. Most of them (8 out of 10) are over 50, but younger women, and in rare cases men, can also get breast cancer. Read more on our Cancer page.

BreastCheck is a Government-funded programme providing breast screening and invites women aged 50 to 69 for a free mammogram on an area-by-area basis every two years. The aim of BreastCheck is to reduce deaths from breast cancer by finding and treating the disease at an early stage.

It is important for women of all ages to regularly check their breasts for lumps and changes. Watch this video on how to check your breasts for more information.
