Cervical screening variation

20th April 2012

Findings published in the Journal of Public Health have discovered wide variations in cervical screening uptake across PCTs and at individual practice level.

The study found that rates were especially low in general practices with high proportions of women who are young, non-white, and disadvantaged, prompting researchers from the Department of Primary Care at Imperial College London to conclude that new strategies need to be deployed to encourage screening take-up among these groups. In 2008 there were 2,500 cases of cervical cancer with 830 deaths.
