Cervical Smear Tests
It is recommended that all women between the ages of 20 and 65 years have a cervical smear test every three years. You will receive a reminder from the All Wales Cytology Service when your smear is due and it is important that you attend for regular smear tests. Appointments specified as cervical smear requests can be made with the Practice Nurse.
If you do not wish to receive an invitation for a smear you will need to contact the All Wales Cytology Service, 36 Orchard St, Swansea Tel: 458066 and also ask us for a form to complete to exclude you from our recall.

There are doctors in the practice able to provide more specialist care. After routine assessment, if appropriate, the doctor can offer joint injections to relieve discomfort.
