Coverage in women aged 25-49 has dropped to 69% and women aged 50-64 has dropped to 78%.

'Nurses are professionals who carry out millions of tests every year, they can play a big part in ensuring women are comfortable'.

Cervical Cancer Prevention Week takes place this week (January 22 - 28).

This is a vaccination against the persistent human papillomavirus (HPV) infection that causes changes to the cervical cells and is responsible for almost all cervical cancers.

"The screening takes just a few minutes to complete and will identify abnormal cells before they become cancerous".
