On Tuesday 5 March 2019, Public Health England, with support from NHS England, launched the first ever national cervical screening campaign targeted at women who are eligible for screening (those aged 25 – 64).
Around 2,600 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer in England each year and around 690 women die from the disease. It is estimated that if everyone attended screening regularly, 83% of cervical cancer cases could be prevented; however, attendance is at a 20-year low, with one in four women in the UK not attending their cervical screening.

Hello everybody, A few things.
One-way system - The car park at Crown Medical Centre operates a one-way system in the car park indicated by the signage on entering the car-park. Can all patients please ensure that they follow the one-way system to avoid incidents occurring by failing to do so. Sherwood Medical Partnership can not be held responsible for any loss or injury sustained as a result of failure to follow the one-way system. Thank you
