Check the CervicalCheck register

If you're on our register and we have the correct postal address for you, we will write to you to:

  • remind you when your next cervical screening test (formerly smear test) is due
  • tell you when your results are ready

We will only be able to write to you if you are on our register.

You should automatically be on our register if you:

  • are aged 25 to 65
  • have a Personal Public Service (PPS) number

You should also be on our register if you have previously had a screening test through CervicalCheck.
