Cervical check issue letters of invitation to all women aged 25-60 years, through the national PPS number database.

You can choose to self register with Cervical Check by logging on to www.cervicalcheck.ie and follow link to Self register opt-in, or alternatively you can call, freephone: 1800 45 45 55. You will need your PPS number to register.

Once you have completed the self registration process and you are due a smear test, you should receive your letter for invitation in the post. Then contact the Waterford Medical Centre to make an appointment for a smear test.

The exception to the above registration process are women who are attending for follow up smear tests due to previous abnormal smear tests, should attend when their repeat smear is due even without invitation.
