If you would like to register with our Practice please ask at Reception for the appropriate forms. You will also be asked to complete a health questionnaire to provide us with information we need. It is important that we have your home telephone number, mobile telephone number and email address as we use these to contact you when necessary.
We recommend that women between the ages of 25 and 64 years have a routine three-yearly test, unless otherwise indicated. Please ask for an appointment with a Nurse when your smear is due.
