One in five women miss cervical screening

19th October 2012

Figures from the NHS Information Centre show that a fifth of women are still not having cervical screening and coverage among older women is lower than it was a decade ago.

Latest data shows in March 2012, 78.6% of eligible 25-64-year-old women in England had been screened at least once in the previous five years which is similar to last year’s figures but lower than the 81.6% achieved in 2002. Coverage for women aged 25-49 years was even lower than the average, at 73.5% but this is slightly up on 2002 when it was 71.7%.
