Cervical Smear

Private cervical smear test with fast results

Regular cervical smear is the most effective cervical cancer prevention

We are here to help ensure you stay well and cervical smear testing is a key way you can take control of your health. As a private clinic, we see women of all ages for cervical smear testing and HPV screening. Our smear test includes a consultation as well as the testing, with results in 72 hours. Our doctors will give you your result on the phone or by email and discuss any next steps with you.

Worldwide, more than half a million women were diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2008.
Around 75% of diagnosed women survive the disease. Cervical cancer survival is higher in women diagnosed at a younger age, and women under 40 years of age have survival rates of more than 85%.

Nine hundred and sixty women died in 2008 in the UK from this disease. Worldwide, cervical cancer is responsible for almost 1 in 10 female cancer deaths.

Smear test services we offer

Smear tests are available at our clinic with a doctor (and you can always request a female doctor if you prefer).

Routine smear tests are a vital part of women’s healthcare and having it done privately has a number of benefits:

  • You can book your appointment at your convenience
  • The test results are back between 48 – 72 hours after your test
  • We include a screen for Human Papilloma Virus
  • We organise an immediate gynaecological referral should you need one


Preparing for test

Please try to avoid planning the screening during your period

During the test

A smear test is a fast procedure, in which the doctor inserts a speculum into the vagina, which allows visibility of the cervix. A soft swab is used to collect a sample of cells from the cervix. The procedure can be uncomfortable but does not cause pain.


Our doctor will give you a call to discuss the results with you once they have arrived. During the call you will agree any necessary follow up. You will receive the results by email after you’ve spoken with the doctor.


Does it hurt to have a smear test?

The test causes some discomfort, and in some cases some mild, short-term pain may occur. It is a very common procedure and can be completed quickly. If you do feel any pain, please inform your practitioner, who may be able to use a smaller speculum. If you are especially nervous or stressed about having a smear test, do not hesitate to tell the practitioner, who will take extra care to explain the process and make sure you are comfortable.

What is cervical cancer?

Cervical cancer is a disease affecting the cervix, the lower part of the uterus, where it opens into the vagina. Cancer occurs when abnormal cells develop on the cervix and begin to grow more rapidly than the body can clear them.

Who is most at risk of developing cervical cancer?

Cervical cancer is most common for women aged between 25 and 49 and it is the third most common gynaecological cancer. Around 2,830 cases of cervical cancer were diagnosed in the UK in 2007, which is 55 women every week.
