All women aged between 20 and 60 years who have ever had sex should have regular cervical smear tests. In Scotland, women in this age group are routinely invited to have a smear test every 3 years. You should contact your doctor if it is more than 3 years since you last had a smear and you have not recently been invited to have a test.
You will be contacted via the post and asked to make an appointment at the practice. Most of our smears are carried out by our specially trained nurses.
The national immunisation programme outlined below is strongly supported by the doctors and health visitors at the Yellow Practice. If you have any concerns about the immunisations please make an appointment to discuss them. Click here for the recommended schedule.
