The National Cervical Screening Programme aims to reduce the number of women developing cervical cancer by detecting pre-malignant changes in the uterine cervix.
Women aged 25-64 years are eligible for inclusion in the National Cervical Screening Programme.
NECS is responsible for the Cervical Screening Administration Service, and supports the National Cervical Screening Programme by:
- providing Prior Notification Lists (PNLs) of patients eligible for screening to GP practices
- sending out call and recall letters to patients eligible for cervical screening tests
- notifying patients of test results once we receive these from laboratories.
