Cervical Cancer Awareness Week 2024 – June 17 to June 23

This year, we are supporting Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust during Cervical Screening Awareness Week because we want you to have all the facts about this potentially life-saving test.

Going for your cervical screening isn’t always easy, and everyone’s experience is different.

This Cervical Screening Awareness Week, Jo’s Trust will be sharing different experiences from women and other people with a cervix: screening after giving birth, after menopause, after transitioning, after receiving the first invitation, and after being refused it altogether.

They will also be sharing information, tips and support on how to make attending your screening a little bit easier.

From 17th – 23rd June 2024, join the conversation on social media and use the hashtag #CervicalScreeningAwarenessWeek or #CSAW24

Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust can also help with any questions or concerns you have.

No question is too big or too small.
