Call for change to smear test age

24th May 2012

Two MPs have backed a campaign for the cervical screening system to be reviewed.

It comes amid claims that the government is risking the lives of women under 25 in England by not giving them cervical smear tests. Liberal Democrat Andrew George and Conservative Mark Spencer have offered their support after a mother who lost her daughter to cervical cancer launched a petition – already signed by 120,000 people - calling for the screening age to be lowered to 20 in England, bringing the country into line with Scotland and Wales.
