All Doctors and Nurses in the Practice are fully registered with the Cervical Check Programme which offers free cervical screening to all women aged between 25 and 60.
To avail of this free test:
- Register online www.cervicalcheck.ie and take note of your ID number.
- Bring any letter from Cervical Check inviting you for a free smear test which will have your ID number beside your PPSN.
- Telephone 1800 454 555 and obtain your ID number
Cervical Check will write to you with your result within 4-6 weeks. The Practice will also receive your results. If you do not receive a letter from Cervical Check within 6 weeks please contact us.
If your result is abnormal our policy is to contact you ourselves, but please always check if you have not received your result.
Nine out of ten smears will be normal and patients will be routinely screened again in 3 or 5 years time. Of the abnormal smears, most will be minor abnormalities that require screening at more frequent intervals. Occasionally, patients will be referred to a colposcopy clinic for further evaluation.

If you have any additional gynaecological symptoms or require other tests these are not covered by the free Cervical Check service.
