Cervical Cancer: Screening

Volume 472: debated on Thursday 21 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what percentage of women aged 25 to 35 years of age have attended a routine smear test in the last 12 months, broken down by primary care trust area. (183760)

Cervical screening attendance data is collected in five-year age bands, starting at 20-24, we are therefore not able to say what percentage of women aged 25 to 35 have attended a routine screen in the last 12 months. However, the following table gives the percentage of women aged 25-34 and 35-39, broken down by primary care trust.

1 This is the number of women in the resident population less those with recall ceased for clinical reasons (most commonly due to hysterectomy).

Notes:

1. National policy for the cervical screening programme is that eligible women aged 25 to 64 should be screened every three or five years. Women aged 25 to 49 are screened every three years, (from 2002 3.5 years) those aged 50 to 64 every five years.

2. Coverage as supplied here relates to the percentage of eligible women aged 25-39 screened within the last 3.5 years

To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) how many women (a) under 25, (b) 25 to 35, (c) 35 to 50, (d) 50 to 60 and (e) over 60 years of age had a CIN 3 graded smear test in each of the last five years for which figures are available; (183761)

(2) how many women under the age of 25 years had a smear test with a CIN 3 result in each of the last five years for which figures are available.

Data for CIN3 are aggregated by age and with data for adenocarcinoma, we are not able to spilt them up. The following tables give figures, for the last five years, for women, whose cervical test outcome was CIN 3 and adenocarcinoma.

Women (all ages) where outcome was CIN3 and adenocarcinoma in situ following referral after persistent non-negative sample (low grade—i.e. category 1/8/3 result) for 2001-02 to 2005-06 and April to June 2006

Data for outcome of referrals is a retrospective collection and annual data for this dataset is always a year behind the rest of the published data for cervical screening, however the first quarter for the following year is available and published at the same time, this has been provided for the period April to June 2006 to show the most up to date information available.2. Figures for 2005-06 and April to June 2006 differ slightly from those published. Arrowe Park Hospital’s laboratory data was submitted with the quarter and the annual data the wrong way round.3. The latest data on cervical screening is available in the Information Centre’s publication “Cervical Screening Programme, England 2006-07”. 4. Low grade includes the results; inadequate (cat 1), borderline (cat 8) and mild dyskaryosis (cat 3)High grade includes the results; moderate dyskaryosis (cat 7), severe dyskariosis (cat 4), severe dyskariosis/?invasive carcinoma (cat 5) and ?glandular neoplasia (cat 6)5. CIN (cervical intra-epithelial neoplasia) is an indicator of the depth of abnormal cells within the cervixCIN3 is where the full thickness of the surface layer is affected (also known as carcinoma in situ)Source:The Information Centre for Health and Social Care Form KC61 part C1 and C2
