22,300 Women Skip Smear Test!

Councillor Phil Bateman said “Wolverhampton Health Watch are undertaking a project, and they have written to me asking if I can help get people here in Wednesfield North interested in filling this survey in. I was shocked to see the statistics! Please if you are a woman take some time and fill the survey in the link it is at the bottom of this page.

This is what Wolverhampton Health Watch wrote to me saying “We are undertaking a project on Cervical Cancer. Between a third and a quarter of women do not respond to their cervical cancer test (smear test) invitation. In the City of Wolverhampton, 22,300 women did not attend their smear test last year. With low levels of attendance, we want to understand why women do not respond to their screening invitations and what can be done to improve attendance. ”

To help us complete this project please either complete this survey or share widely with your contacts.
