Doctors across Doncaster are calling for women to attend their smear test appointments to help more women live healthy lives.
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.
Nationally, attendance at screening appointments is at a 20-year low, with 1 in 4 women in the UK not attending their cervical screening.
In Doncaster, the number of women aged 25 to 64 that attended their cervical screening appointment in 2017-18 was 74.2%, slightly higher than the national average of 71.7%.
