Bolton JSNA Indicator Sheet: Cervical Cancer Screening


This is the Cervical Cancer Screening JSNA Indicator Sheet from the Behaviour and Access to Services section. JSNA Indicator Sheets summarise the current position and recent trends for Bolton, comparators to Bolton, and inequalities across population groups and geographical areas of Bolton.


  • Screening coverage for cervical cancer across the major age ranges and time since last screening in Bolton is similar to the North West;
  • Screening for all ages where last screening is less then 5 years previous has been reducing since 2003/04;
  • Considering the screening coverage range across the country, Bolton and the North West are around the national average;
  • Though relatively few deaths occur, Bolton does have a higher mortality rate than England for cervical cancer (but this difference is only just significant).
