  • Are there significant health inequalities impacting on the uptake of screening?
  • If a patient is pregnant and symptoms persist, what is the best way to manage this?
  • What are your thoughts about self-smear tests?
  • Should GPs complete a diagnostic smear test if a patient is symptomatic?
  • Can women be examined or have cervical smears when they are on their period?
