Cervical screening invite

Hi all , I’m pretty sure I was due my invite for cervical screening this month but havnt had a letter , is there a delay or backlog at all does anyone know? And is it still every 3 years in the U.K.?
Thanks in advance x

Yep, it’s 3 years until the age of 49 and then every 5 until 64. We’ve had medical letters held up with the postal strikes recently, so it could be on the way. I’m not sure you need to have been invited for a smear to book one at the GP - worth a call if you know you’re due, I’d say!

Thanks for replying. Iv rang the doctors and got booked in :slight_smile:
