Cervical Cancer: Screening

Volume 476: debated on Tuesday 20 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what proportion of women in (a) Hemsworth constituency and (b) England received cervical smear tests within the recommended period of time in the last 12 months. (206042)

I refer my hon. Friend to the response I gave the hon. Member for Boston and Skegness (Mark Simmonds) on 31 January 2008, Official Report, columns 617-36W, which provides information on cervical screening coverage across England, broken down by primary care trust.

Coverage is the percentage of eligible women who have had a cervical screening test result in the previous five years.
