‘The Smear Test Film’ is a health education film resource for women eligible for cervical screening (smear tests) who have mild and moderate learning disabilities. It has been made by Public Health England in association with Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust. Professional guidance and support in the development of this resource was provided by the Better Health Team for Learning Disabilities at Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.
The film has been designed and made by women who have learning disabilities. It aims to give women and their carers information about smear tests and their role in preventing cervical cancer. It is a resource that can help women make a decision about whether to attend their smear test invitation.
