Cervical cancer events - Coventry and Warwickshire

Do you have questions or concerns about cervical cancer? If you want to find out about the signs and symptoms, want to talk about smear tests, the HPV vaccination or want to find out how you can reduce your risk, come along to one of these FREE awareness raising sessions?

Every year in the UK around 3,000 people will be diagnosed with cervical cancer and it is the most common cancer in women aged 35 and under. 75% of cervical cancers can be prevented by cervical screening (smear tests)

Better Care Coventry and Warwickshire want to ensure all women and people with a cervix know how cervical cancer can be prevented and feel more confident to take up this potentially life-saving test.
