European Cervical Cancer Prevention Week
European Cervical Cancer Prevention Week runs from 18-24 January 2021. Our messages during this week will continue to highlight that HPV cervical screening is the best way to see if someone is at risk of developing cervical cancer in the future. Due to the large number of COVID-19 cases in recent weeks, it may take longer for some people to get a cervical screening appointment.
But people should still check the register on http://www.hse/cervicalcheck and if they are due an appointment, to book one with a provider, even if it’s a few weeks away.
Please find below a partner pack with information.
