Why do women fail to show up for cervical or breast screening appointments?

Government figires show that one in four women over 50 dont attend cervical and breast screening appointments.  Wessex Voices is working with NHS England to find out why

If you are a woman over 50 who, for whatever reason, hasnt attended a screen appintment please complate the short questionnaire at http://bit.ly/wvscreeningsurvey

Wessex Voices will share the findings of the survey with NHS England Public Health (Wessex), who will use them to inform their work with local GPs and with the national NHS screening programme. Your thoughts will also be used to inform local cancer awareness campaigns taking place in 2019.
