Motion text

That this House welcomes Cervical Screening Awareness Week 2015, which runs from 15 to 21 June 2015 and is led by Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust; notes that the week aims to highlight the importance of cervical screening and how attending a screening appointment can help to prevent cervical cancer; further notes that the UK has a cervical screening programme that saves 5,000 lives a year, however nearly three women still die from cervical cancer every day; understands that over 22 per cent of women still do not attend their cervical screening; believes that, with eight women diagnosed with cervical cancer every day, raising public awareness of cervical screening is a priority; further understands that almost two-thirds of women aged 50 to 64 do not know that HPV causes cervical cancer and that women in this cervical screening age group are more likely to be diagnosed with advanced stage cervical cancer than other eligible age groups; recognises the excellent work of Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust in supporting women and their families; and asks hon. Members, clinicians and policymakers to join the fight to eradicate cervical cancer.
