20-26 June is Cervical Screening Awareness Week 2022 and Martin Whitfield MSP is helping promote awareness and understanding about screening.
The South Scotland MSP is supporting Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust because they want women to have all the facts about this potentially life-saving test. Did you know almost one in three women and people with a cervix don’t take up their invite?
Cervical screening can stop cervical cancer from ever developing, but the charity knows that the test is not always easy. They are encouraging people to share their tips, experiences, and positive messages about screening.
Speaking about his support, Martin Whitfield MSP said:
“I’m supporting Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust because women should have all the facts about this potentially life-saving test. It’s simple, share your tips and experiences to help break down some of the confusion and anxiety that exists around the test and find all the information and support you need from the charity’s website and social media.”
