Written Statement: Cervical Screening - Welsh Government

Statement from Vaughan Gething AM, Minister for Health and Social Services

I am making this statement following concerns expressed by some Assembly Members in March this year about laboratory closures and delays for women receiving test results in England. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Public Health Wales, which delivers the Cervical Screening Wales (CSW) programme, for successfully rolling-out high-risk Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) testing as the primary screen in September 2018
