Private Smear Tests
Dr Hodson now undertakes private smear tests for any women over the age of 25 years. This facility does not prevent the usual NHS smear taking place when it becomes due but is a service available for those who may prefer to have smears more frequently than offered. For further information please leave contact details for Dr Hodson’s attention at the surgery and she will contact your to discuss this.
Cervical smear including screening for HPV £90
Smear without HPV testing £70
* HPV is Human Papilloma Virus which is strongly associated with smear abnormalities.
