Wessex Voices is seeking to find out why and is asking all women over 50 to complete a short survey to understand your experiences of screening – http://bit.ly/wvscreeningsurvey

The results will give a better understanding of women’s feelings about screening tests to enable the screening programme to target women more effectiveley.
