Smear tests aren’t easy for everyone, but they can save lives
Join us this week (21 - 27 January) for #SmearForSmear

This is to encourage patients to self care, ease pressure on NHS services and free up clinician time for people who have more complex healthcare needs.
Please visit CCG website for more information about self-care, where you can find very useful fact-sheets about managing common conditions like Children's fever, Headaches and Lower Back Pain just to mention few!
Please follow this link to read the Position Statement issued by CCG Lambeth.
