Adopt HPV testing for cervical cancer in Northern Ireland

Adopt the more reliable HPV test for cervical cancer in Northern Ireland, which is already in place in Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland.

Why is this important?

According to Cancer Focus NI, 83 women in Northern Ireland a year are diagnosed with cervical cancer and often there are few symptoms. Northern Ireland should be on a path to eradicating cervical cancer, and improved, more reliable testing is a vital part of that.
