To ask the Scottish Government whether cervical screening is available to all women at contraception and sexual health clinics, and what its position is on this.

Answered by: Shona Robison 24 February 2017

Territorial NHS Boards are responsible for ensuring the availability of cervical screening services for local residents. It is expected that NHS Boards work with GPs and local sexual and reproductive health clinics to ensure that satisfactory appointment systems are in place for the benefit of eligible women.
