From 6 June 2016 the eligible age range for cervical screening and frequency of screening changed in Scotland. The eligible age range is now 25-64 years and up to 70 for women on non-routine follow-up. Woman aged 25-49 will be called routinely every three years and those aged 50 and over will be called every five years. Women already in the screening programme under the age of 25 will continue to be included in the eligible cohort for screening. Unless clinically indicated, women who have been called by SCCRS for screening should have a test taken.
