Cervical screening results delays

Posted on April 30th, 2019

We have been informed that there is currently a delay on smear test results being received. At the moment there is increasing pressure on laboratory services whose workload has significantly increased over recent weeks. Lab staff are working incredibly hard to ensure a high-quality service continues to be delivered and that Turn Around Times are met. However, it is likely that some patients may not receive their results within the usual 2 week period and it may be several weeks until they do so.

We ask women to please not call the laboratories for their results as lab staff are not in a position to share this information and responding to calls takes them away from their screening duties.
