My GP is refusing to give me a cervical smear test despite my aunt having died from cervical cancer. how do I go about getting one done privately and I am happy to pay for it myself
Thank you for your question.
It is not clear from your question how old you are. Cervical Screening is usually offered via the NHS to females aged between 26 and 64 years old if you are registered with a GP.
We have included a link below which gives further information of Cervical Screening, and the processes.
If you feel that your circumstances are included within these guidelines, it may be suggested to speak again with your GP or GP Practice Manager.
You may of course choose to pay privately for Cervical Screening. The best way to find a clinic within your area would be to do an internet search or a telephone directory. This enables you to have a choice of the clinics which offer this service.
We hope this information has been useful.
