Description:
The aim of this study was to evaluate levels of satisfaction of women attending the CervicalCheck programme and reasons for the age differential in screening uptake. A questionnaire was sent to 5,000 randomly selected attenders with a normal smear test (3,500 aged 25-44, 1,500 aged 45-60). Almost all in both age groups said they would return to CervicalCheck if invited (98.5%;98.5%) and recommend the service to family/friend (99.6%;99.5%). The single independent predictor of â would recommend to family/friendâ was willingness to return to CervicalCheck (OR=31 (5.2-183.7)). Predictors of â would return if invitedâ were knowledge of when due to return (OR=2.5 (1.3-5.0)) and having contacted or having received a letter of invitation from CervicalCheck (OR=3.1 (1.6-6.1)). Independent predictors of â knowledge of when due to returnâ were older age group (OR=0.5 (0.4-0.7)) and willingness to return to CervicalCheck (OR=3.2 (1.2-6.3)). The GP is particularly important in informing older women and encouraging attendance.
