Cervical Screening Awareness WeeK

Date: 9 Jun 2014

Cervical Screening Awareness Week (CSAW) is a UK-wide initiative led by Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust. The week aims to highlight the importance of cervical screening (smear) and how attending a screening invitation can help to prevent cervical cancer.  
 
In the UK, 22% of women still do not attend their cervical screening, so raising public awareness of cervical cancer prevention is a priority. Public knowledge and understanding of issues such as cervical screening, the causes of cervical abnormalities and cervical cancer and treatment is generally low.

 “We have learned so much through the Cornwall Workplace Health Award Programme already, and are keen that we pass this learning on to our staff.  With many organisations already represented, we were surprised we haven’t got involved sooner as it’s so aligned to our overall ‘Wellbeing Ambition’ that working for the Environment Agency will improve health and wellbeing”
