Southall Medical Centre regularly engages with awareness days and campaigns throughout the year to encourage good health promotion among our patients.
The campaign we are celebrating in the month of January is:
Cervical Cancer Prevention Week (18-24 January 2021)
Do you know how cervical cancer can be prevented? During Cervical Cancer Prevention Week we want as many people as possible to know how they can reduce their risk of the disease and to educate others.
How can you reduce your risk of cervical cancer?
We want to ensure all women and people with a cervix know how cervical cancer can be prevented. This means:
- Attending cervical screening when invited
- Knowing the symptoms of cervical cancer and seeking medical advice if experiencing any
- Taking up the HPV vaccination if aged 11-18
- Knowing where to find support and further information
Please book an appointment for cervical smear if you are called. We have early morning and late evening appointments at both Lady Margaret Road site and 70 Norwood Road site.
