Current studies and audits

YouScreen HPV Self-Sampling Research Study

Our practice is taking part in the YouScreen HPV Self-Sampling Research Study.

This practice is taking part in the YouScreen research study run by King’s College London.

As part of the study, women aged 25 to 64 years who are at least 6 months overdue their cervical screening (previously known as a “smear test”) may receive a letter and a self-sample kit in the post, or be offered a kit during their appointment.

If you meet the criteria above, this study will collect de-personalised data about you from NHS England and your GP records, even if you do not take part. We will not link your name or identifiable details to this information. The information collected will include your age, ethnicity, general area location, and details about your previous and future cervical screening and link it to data from the national screening database. 

If you have any questions about this study or if you do not want this non-identifiable information data to be shared, please speak to a member of the GP practice reception staff.
