Last year during Cervical Cancer Prevention Weel we launched a research project where we looked at the barriers that women face when accessing cervical screening in North Lincolnshire.
We received over 250 responses to our survey and our results highlighted that many individuals with learning and/or physical disabilities had more difficulty with understanding, booking, and attending their cervical screening appointments.
In response, we submitted our report to the service providers and gave them a number of recommendations to help improve the service across North Lincolnshire.
These recommendations have since been reviewed and actions have been put in place to ensure accessibility to cervical screening is increased.
