On 11th October the Cervical Screening campaign ‘Don’t ignore it’  launched.  The campaign urges those eligible for cervical screening (smear test) not to ignore their invite.

The campaign has been developed in response to a continued decline in the uptake of cervical screening in Scotland.  Insight shows those eligible don’t think cervical cancer will happen to them, and barriers to attending screening still exist, such as embarrassment, complacency and worry. The campaign has been designed to raise awareness of the benefits of cervical screening, and highlight that a smear test can stop cervical cancer before it starts.
