Cytology Screening

NHS cervical screening programme is available to women aged 25 to 64 in England.

Screening Tests

Cervical screening is a method of preventing cancer by detecting and treating abnormalities of the cervix.

Cervical Cytology

The programme uses liquid based cytology (LBC) to collect samples of cells from the cervix.

The laboratory will examine these samples under the microscope to look for any abnormal changes in the cells.
