Cervical screening programme
The National Cervical Screening Programme (NCSP) was established in 1990 to reduce the number of women who develop cervical cancer and the number who die from it.
The NCSP recommends that women have a cervical smear test every three years between the ages 20-70. In 2016, more than a million women – over 95 per cent of all eligible women – were enrolled in the programme.
