Motion text

That this House recognises the excellent work of Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust in raising the awareness and importance of cervical screening in the UK; understands that Jo's Trust once again very successfully championed Cervical Screening Awareness Week from 13 to 19 June, to ensure that as many women as possible attend cervical screening sessions; is aware that cervical screening prevents 75 per cent of cervical cancers from developing in the UK, yet one in four women do not attend screening when invited, and that this is one of the biggest risk factors for developing cervical cancer; is concerned that incidences of cervical cancer in the UK have risen from eight diagnoses per day, to nine each day, meaning that over 3,000 women a year now face a diagnosis; congratulates local community activist and charity campaigner, Suzanne Fernando, on recently organising a 5K Charity Walk in Eglinton Park, Kilwinning, which was a huge success and, together with other campaigns, helped to raise over £20,000 for the charity; and wishes Jo's Trust every success going forward, in its efforts to eradicate this tragic and preventable condition.
