MP delighted Norfolk is above England’s average for cervical cancer screening

Henry was delighted to have been able to attend Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust’s Parliamentary drop-in event on Tuesday 22nd January. Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust aims to make cervical cancer a disease of the past – this is certainly an admirable aim as over 3,200 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer every year.

Commenting Henry said: “Tragically two women lose their lives every day to cervical cancer, it is therefore absolutely vital that all women attend a cervical screening. It is certainly encouraging that cervical screening attendance in Norfolk, for 25-64 year olds, is 74.1% which is above England’s average of 71.4%.”

“Of course, there is more that needs to be done and this is why I fully support Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust; which is a truly outstanding charity which aims to ensure every woman affected by cervical cancer can get the support and information they need.”
