Cervical Screening Toolkit

This toolkit aims to address falling attendance rates and women’s poor understanding of cervical cancer and the benefits of cervical screening. The information will help GPs, practice nurses and other practice staff better understand the barriers to attendance (especially with vulnerable groups) and to use tried and tested methods to increase attendance.

Your tools to support attendance

To get the most out of this toolkit, it’s best to use the online resources here. The online version contains several links to further sources of information. Printed copies of the core resources are also available upon request (we’ve allowed for one per practice).

If you would like a printed copy, please contact your local Resources Officer to request one. You can also download the full Cervical Screening Toolkit.

If you would like to tell us how you have used the toolkit in your practice, we would love to hear from you with a view to sharing with the cervical screening professional network. Please get in touch at nhs.HealthScotland-ScreeningandImmunisation@nhs.net.

To provide feedback on any of the materials, visit our feedback page or if you have a specific query about the cervical screening programme, please contact your local Screening Coordinator.

NHS Health Scotland would like to acknowledge Cancer Research UK, NHS Forth Valley Health Promotion Department, NHS Lanarkshire Health Promotion Department, NHS National Education for Scotland and members of the CARAF communications group for their input and advice.
