From Monday 29th June, anyone who was invited for cervical screening before the pause and was yet to make an appointment, or had their appointment cancelled, will be able to contact their GP practice to make an appointment.
Appointment invitations and reminders will be posted from mid-July, with invitations sent to those who receive more frequent (non-routine) cervical screening appointments first.
Routine screening will recommence once NHS Scotland has caught up with the non-routine appointments affected by the pause.
If you received an invite before the pause or had your appointment cancelled due to COVID-19, contact us on 0131 228 6081 now to book your cervical screening (smear test).
Due to COVID-19, a number of safety measures have been put in place to ensure it is safe to attend screening appointment. There is no change to the screening test itself.
