Share Your Selfie, Join The #SmearForSmear Campaign

To mark Cervical Cancer Prevention Week, we’re joining the #SmearForSmear campaign, which aims to help women understand just how important it is to go for a smear test.

The facts

  • Smear tests prevent 75% of all cervical cancers
  • 1 in 4 women don’t attend their smear test – that’s 1.2 million women not attending every year
  • Cervical cancer is the most common cancer in women under 35
  • Smear tests provide the best protection against the disease BUT attendance is falling across the UK, we’re at a 20 year low in England

The reasons women don’t attend are wide ranging, including embarrassment, fear, not thinking it’s important, not understanding what it’s for and simply putting it off.

Share your selfie

All you have to do is put your favourite lipstick on, smear it, share it on social media and nominate a friend to do the same, anytime from 22nd – 28th January. Et voila!

The #SmearForSmear campaign is in its fourth year now, and it WORKS! The number of smear tests booked increases around the time the campaign runs, so please help us spread the word. Thank you!
