Private Smear Test

Cervical smear test and HPV screen

A cervical smear test is an important aspect of women's health and can help catch any early signs of cervical cancer

Private smear test & HPV Services

We provide private cervical smear tests, with an HPV test included. We also offer sub-typing of HPV if your test comes back positive. This will help us to determine whether your virus strain is high or low risk.

We also offer a vaccine against the human papillomavirus. If you have not been sexually active, this can be administered to a woman of any age. If you have been sexually active, we recommend checking your current HPV status first.

What is Cervical Cancer?

The third most common gynaecological cancer is cervical cancer, most commonly being found in women between the ages of 25 and 49. Every week 62 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer, equating to over 3,200 cases in the UK annually.

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

Nearly nine hundred women die in the UK from this disease every year. Worldwide, cervical cancer is responsible for almost 1 in 10 female cancer deaths. Cervical cancer screening is recommended regularly to all women over 25. Read our blog on the smear test for more information

As part of our private smear test, we will test you for HPV and additionally will be able to inform you as to what kind (sub-type) of HPV you have. With this information, we will be able to give you a recommendation on how often a smear test will be needed and assess your risk of cervical cancer and genital warts.



A consultation is included in the smear price of £195 so the doctor will give you a follow up call once the results arrive. In case your smear shows any abnormalities, you will discuss options for future steps including possible referrals.

What to do next

If you have an abnormal smear the doctor will arrange a private appointment and advise on the next steps of treatment, depending on your individual case.

Preparing for test

The best time to have a smear test is 2 weeks after your period ends. You also cannot have a repeat smear test within 3 months of your last smear. We cannot conduct a cervical smear during your period.


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. We work with female GPs every day who can help explain the test, discuss your relevant symptoms and conduct the cervical smear for you.


What is HPV?

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a viral infection which affects the linings of the body cavities and the skin. There are usually no symptoms of the infection and it is transmitted via skin to skin contact.

How common is HPV?

Eight out of ten people will be infected from the virus at some point of their lives in the UK. The virus mostly occurs on fingers hands, mouth and genitals. There are many different types of HPV from which most are harmless, but around 30 of them can cause cancer (cervical cancer).

What are the benefits of having smear tests done privately?
