Cervical Screening

Cervical check

A cervical screening test (previously known as a smear test) looks to see if you might be at greater risk of developing cervical cancer in the future. On 30 March 2020, HPV cervical screening will be introduced. HPV is the main cause of cervical cancer. Finding HPV first is a better way to screen for cervical cancer. If HPV infection is detected early further monitoring and treatment will be arranged via the Colposcopy clinic if there are any changes to cells in your cervix.This is a new way of cervical screening introduced by the HSE and will be offered for free as part of the Cervical screening programme with Cervical check.

To check that you are eligible for free Cervical screening please check the Cervical check register online https://apps.cervicalcheck.ie/check-eligibility/check-eligibility.596.checkeligibilityv2.html
