HC Deb 29 October 1985 vol 84 cc448-9W
Mr. McCrindle

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what steps he proposes to seek to persuade more women in high risk categories to obtain cervical cancer screening.

Mr. Hayhoe

[pursuant to his reply, 25 October 1985, c. 284]: Computerised systems to identify and call up women will help considerably. Health authorities have been advised to plan their implementation. Further suggestions on how to reach women most at risk are included in a consultative paper on practical steps to improve the screening programme which will be issued shortly.
