This week is important. It’s Cervical Screening Awareness Week 2023 (19th – 24th June 2023).
Going for your cervical screening isn’t always easy, and everyone’s experience is different. So many changes in life, from big milestones to how we feel day-to-day, can have an impact.
This Cervical Screening Awareness Week, Jo’s Trust are sharing different experiences from women and other people with a cervix: screening after giving birth, after menopause, after transitioning, after receiving the first invitation, and after being refused it altogether.
They will also be sharing information, tips and support on how to make attending your screening a little bit easier.
Join the conversation on social media and use the hashtag #LetsTalkScreening
We’re supporting Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust because we want you to have all the facts about this potentially life-saving test. Did you know almost one in three women and people with a cervix don’t take up their invite? We want to change that, and you can help!
It’s simple, share your tips, experiences and help break down some of the confusion and anxiety that exists around the test.
