Cervical Smears and Well Woman Checks

Cervical smears are undertaken by the practice nurses, and you can expect to receive reminders initially from the health authority, and subsequently from our practice nurses if you are overdue or have not attended. Please be informed that it takes the laboratory a variable number of weeks for you to get the result of your smear, and this can be between 6-12 weeks.

The nurses are very experienced, and function as health professionals in their own right. They help the doctors immensely by undertaking most of the routine care of patients with chronic problems, ranging from hypertension to diabetes and asthma. As we are a small practice with excellent cooperation and good relations between all health professionals, the nurses may refer any new problems that are picked up to the doctors.
