Health Promotion

Our practice nurses offer a full range of health checks and advice regarding diet and healthy lifestyle.

Routine Cervical Screening Tests

All women between the ages of 25 and 64 years are included in the NHS Cervical Screening Programme. Women are called for screening as they approach their 25th birthday and are then recalled every three years up to the age of 49 and then every five years from age 50 up to 64.

You will be sent a letter asking you to make an appointment with the practice nurse. If your cervical screening test is not due then we are unable to provide this service for you. The results of your cervical screening test will be sent to you direct.

Cervical screening tests search for abnormal cells on the cervix, or neck of the womb, which may possibly become cancerous, but which can be easily treated before they become harmful.

Breast Screening or Mammography

All women between 50 and 70 years of age will be offered an appointment for a mammogram at three-yearly intervals. At present, in the Norwich area, most women receive their first invitation when they are 51 years old.

Women over the age of 70 years are welcome to attend for mammography every three years, but will need to refer themselves to the Breast Screening Unit at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital, telephone 01603 283777.

Should you wish to have advice about examining your own breasts, please request an appointment with our practice nurse.
