Adults: Keeping Healthy

Cervical Screening Tests

Cervical screening starts at the age of 25 where women will be invited to be screened every 3 years until they reach the age of 49. The screening then invites women every 5 years up to and including the age of 64.

When your next smear test is due you will receive a reminder by post. We have a number of staff trained to complete these screening tests and you can make an appointment by calling the practice on 01327 703333.

NHS Health Checks

The NHS Health Check programme aims to help prevent heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease.

Everyone between the ages of 40 and 74, who has not already been diagnosed with one of these conditions or have certain risk factors, will be invited (once every five years) to have a check to assess their risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and diabetes and will be given support and advice to help them reduce or manage that risk.

It makes sense for all eligible people to have a routine NHS Health Check for these conditions every five years. That means you can take action early, and greatly improve your chance of a healthier and longer life. Small, long-lasting changes to your lifestyle can make a huge difference.
