Smear Tests and HPV
Smear tests, otherwise known as cervical screenings, check the health of the cells of your cervix. They can help prevent as the development of cervical cancer by detecting the presence of abnormal cells.
They can also be used to check for HPV (Human Papilloma Virus). HPV is a very common virus that can lead to issues such as genital warts or cervical cancer.

This vaccine helps to protect against cancers caused by HPV. It is usually given to girls and boys aged between 12 and 13 but can be given to young adults also. See our vaccinations page for more information.
