The age at which women are offered smears tests is 25 in England, 20 in the rest of the UK. This is too late, all women should be offered a smear test at 18.

All of us have a woman in our lives; they could be yourself, a wife, girlfriend, sister, mother, aunt, daughter, friend or colleague at work. Cervical smear tests are an important part of female health and so should be offered to all women, every 3 years between the ages of 18 and 65. The problem is women in the UK are not offered them early enough. The aim of this cause to make the public aware of this. If people are aware they can join campaigns, sign petitions and write to their M.Ps (which I encourage). Please pass on this cause and make the ladies in your life aware. Thank you xx
