Yesterday was the start of 2017’s Cervical screening awareness week.
Anyone who has read this blog should know by now the importance of going for your screening. I hope that the training that was delivered in Devon recently results in GP surgeries focusing their efforts in chasing up those many smear dodgers. Further training is in the pipeline for other areas dependant on funding. I’m waiting on feedback on what the surgeries involved in the training put in place for this week and the effect it has.
There are still far too many women not attending their smears. I hope you, or someone you love isn’t one of them. I wont bang on about it, just signpost anyone you know who isn’t attending over here!
I have been selected by RCOG (Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists) to be part of their ‘Specialists of tomorrow insight group’. In a nutshell it is a working group of non medical ‘experts’ who will advise on a revamp of the college’s curriculum. Gynaeoncology is a small part of potential specialists training and there will be many other women there selected to represent various other topics. I will know more next week after I have attended the college in London. It will be great to get my brain working at full speed again and enjoy an overnight stay in London. It’s been far too long.
