PRACTICE MERGER INFORMATION.

Following the recent press release about our proposed merger with the other GP surgeries in Huntingdon we have received a number of queries from patients.  We have collated these questions into one document which is available here and which we will keep updated as we receive further questions.  Should you have a question about the proposed merger which is not answered by this document please send it to capccg.huntsgrouppractice@nhs.net.”  

Frequently asked questions about the merger

 

Cervical Screening

Cervical screening reduces the risk of developing cervical cancer.  Cervical cancer rates have halved since the 1980’s largely due to most women regularly having cervical screening. Cervical cancer can often be prevented.

All women aged 25 to 64 are offered cervical smear tests.  You will automatically receive an invitation from the National Screening Programme, plus a reminder if you do not make an appointment.  You will receive invitations every three years between the ages of 25 and 49 and then every five years between 50 and 64.

When you receive your invitation letter, please phone the surgery on 01480 483100 to make an appointment with one of our Nursing Team.
