On 14th February 2022, The Office for Health Improvement and Disparities, with the support of NHS England and NHS Improvement will launch a national cervical screening campaign. The Help Us Help You – Cervical Screening campaign will encourage those eligible for screening – women and people with a cervix aged 25-64 – to respond to their cervical screening invitation letter, and to book an appointment with their GP practice if they missed their last screening.
Two women die every day from cervical cancer, yet it is one of the most preventable cancers. Around 2,700 women in England are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year and it is the second most common cancer amongst women under 35.
The campaign will raise awareness of the risks of cervical cancer and highlight the preventative benefits of screening. The overall aim of the campaign is to increase the number of those eligible attending their screening.
