As 1M women miss smear tests during lockdown, should we be worried?
from Huffington Post
Around 1 million women have had their smear tests canceled or postponed during lockdown, charities estimate, with some warning that the long-term impact could mean an increase in cervical cancer cases. Screening has been paused almost completely in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, where only "a handful of appointments" have been carried out during lockdown, according to Kate Sanger, a spokesperson from Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust. Meanwhile, screening services in England have become a postcode lottery, with decisions about whether or not to run services decided at a local level.
