Cervical screening time for a review?
Cancer

Pages: 4 - 10

Article topics: Cervical screening, Guidelines and policy, Risk factors

This article critically evaluates the evidence and guidelines relating to the current cervical screening policy in England. The findings are benchmarked against policies in the rest of the developed world to enable both a comparison of the interpretation of research and guidelines by other agencies, and identification of good practice worldwide. Evidence pertaining to the age at which screening is commenced will constitute the prominent discussion point.
