Wellbeing of Women - cervical screening
ASK THE EXPERT - Wellbeing of Women and talkhealth teamed up to offer our community the opportunity to put their cervical screening questions to our panel of experts. Stamatina Iliodromiti, Dr Fiona McCarthy and Shakila Thangaratinam kindly joined us to give advice and support regarding cervical screening. The clinic is now closed but you can view the questions and answers here.
Wellbeing of Women was founded 55 years ago and is one of the only charities finding cures and treatments across the breadth of female reproductive health, including pregnancy & childbirth, fertility, gynaecological cancers, and overlooked areas like endometriosis, PCOS and the menopause..
