Students who are interested in having a Cervical screening test can book an appointment with the doctor or nurse by phoning Student Health on 01 716 3134. Please specify the type of appointment they are booking in order to allow the appropriate amount of time for the test to take place. Students are only eligible for a cervical smear test at Student Health if:
- They are over 25.
- They are registered with Cervical Check and are due a screening test
- Students must bring their Cervical Check registration number to their appointment.
- Please note there is no charge for this appointment. The best time to have a cervical screening test is mid-cycle (day 10-15) if you are not on the OCP (the pill). If you are taking OCP (the pill), it is best to have the test during the first two weeks of any packet. Do not book a screening test when you are likely to have a period, as it cannot be done while you are bleeding.
