Cervical Screening Training

Theory, Practice, Update

Cervical Screening Training has been established in the North East since 2000. The service is commissioned and funded by Health Education England.  This provides Cervical Screening Mentors to oversee the clinical element of training for nurses new to cervical screening and provide support and advice for established sample takers. The funding also provides update training for established nurse sample takers working in the North East region. The NHS Cervical Screening Programme -Guidance for the training of cervical sample takers, recommends three yearly update training; therefore doctors are encouraged to attend.

We are based in New Croft Centre, Market Street East, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE1 6ND. We provide update training at various venues across the region. To get in touch with us, please visit our Contact Us section.
