Breast Cancer Screening
Why? About 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer at some point in their life.
What? Breast cancer screening is a test done by an xray test called a mammogram that aims to spot breast cancers before any symptoms develop. The results are sent to you and your GP usually within 2 to 3 weeks of your mammogram appointment.
In Oxford most breast cancer screening appointments are at the Churchill hospital, it may be possible to attend a mobile unit, usually in Witney or Charlbury.
To contact the screening service in Oxford:
When? All women between the ages of 50 and 71 will be invited every 3 years for breast cancer screening and it is also possible to request screening once you are over the age of 71.

Bowel Cancer Screening
Why? About 1 in 20 people will develop bowel cancer at some point in their life.
What? Bowel cancer screening involves a one time scope (thin, flexible tube with a camera at then end) test and subsequent home tests. These home tests involve you collecting 3 different stool samples and putting a small sample of them onto a card which is then posted back to the screening programme to be analysed for potential signs of cancer. The results are usually sent back to you within 2-3 weeks.
When? Bowel cancer screening is offered with a scope test at age 55 and then with a testing kit through the post every 2 years from age 60 to 74.

Cervical Cancer Screening
Why? It is one of the best ways to protect yourself from cervical cancer.
What? Cervical cancer screening is a test that aims to prevent cervical cancer cells from developing and to pick up the earliest changes so that cervical cancer can be prevented. The screening itself involves a quick (around 5 minute) test, during which a small sample of cells are taken from the cervix. This sample is then sent off for analysis to test for changes in the cells and the results are sent to you usually within 2 to 4 weeks. Any abnormal results, would then automatically recall for a follow up appointment.
When? All women between the ages of 25 and 64 are invited for screening, this happens every 3 years from 25-49 and then every 5 years from 50-64.
You will be invited with a letter through the post. When you receive this you are welcome to book in for an appointment for your smear test with an appropriately trained member of the clinical team at 19 Beaumont Street Surgery.
If you are invited and it is not possible for you to have your smear at that point, for example if you are pregnant or you have recently had a smear abroad, then please let us know so that we can defer your smear to a more appropriate time. To ensure your wishes are met a signed declaration is required to inform NHS England of your intention to defer for a maximum of 18 months or withdraw from the NHS screening programme. Forms are available at the practice for your completion.
Please look at the following website which has more information about the screening process and includes a video of how the sample is taken:
