A quarter of women across the region are missing out on screening that could save their life, health bosses have revealed.

This week is Cervical Cancer Prevention Week and health bosses from NHS England Hertfordshire and South Midlands - which includes Bedfordshire - are encouraging women in the area to make sure they attend their cervical screening.

Attending regular cervical screening appointments (also known as smear tests) at your local doctor’s surgery is the best way to identify abnormal changes in the cells of the cervix at an early stage which can help to prevent cancer before it happens.
