Kayleigh Woolley started this petition to NHS

I have made this petition on behalf of many women/mothers/families who could potentially save their lives. 

The current age for smear testing in the UK is 25+. The amount of women who miss out on spotting cervical cancer early and able to treat it before it progresses is due to this age limit. 

I think Many women who have children or have been sexually active for some time should have a smear test as soon as possible - it should be a standard procedure, it’s so so important and something that can SAVE A LIFE.  

Im asking for support on this petition to lower the age of smear testing to at least 21 years old or if possible down to 18 years old. 

A 5 minute procedure and getting checked earlier rather than later is what can SAVE YOUR LIFE, it could take just a few days to miss out on catching it early, a few days and then your life could be cut short due to a medical illness which could have been treated sooner. 

PLEASE PLEASE SUPPORT THIS PETITION AND IF YOURE OVER 25 & HAVEN’T HAD A SMEAR TEST - PLEASE GET IT DONE.
