Each year, approximately 200 women in Ireland are diagnosed with cervical cancer and over 90 lives are lost.
76 per cent of women have attended a CervicalCheck smear test, however to make a difference and save lives, we need to ensure they continue to go for regular smear tests.
It only takes seconds to register. To check when a smear test is due or to find a convenient smear taker, go to www.cervicalcheck.ie or Freephone 1800 45 45 55.
