A charity is urging women to attend their cervical screening tests, after figures showed one in four did not take up their invitation to attend an appointment.
Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust is making the plea as part of national Cervical Screening Awareness Week.
- Testing for cervical cancer among women in England has fallen to a 10-year low, a cancer charity said.
- Despite cervical screening saving 5,000 lives every year in the UK, 20% of women are not being tested.
- Almost 69% of women aged between 25 and 29 missed their screening invitation in 2010/11, while 23% of women aged between 50 and 60 also failed to get screened last year, according to the charity.
