September is Cervical Screening Awareness Month!

Have a smear for the ones you love.
Cervical Screening Awareness Month (CSAM) is coming up fast and is an opportunity to encourage all women to be up-to-date on their cervical smear.

Our aim will be to convince any woman overdue on their smear, to get one, with the main focus on our priority group women and women between 25-39 years old.

The National Screening Unit (NSU) will maximise awareness of cervical screening with a nationwide radio campaign to remind and motivate women to get up-to-date with their smears.

This will also be supported by posters for use in local promotions, along with a small incentive for women who are overdue to come in for their smear during September.  
Finally, we want to say a big thank you for all the hard work that goes into promoting CSAM and supporting primary care to increase screening rates.  We look forward to seeing some great results again from this year's campaign.
