Recommended management of women
Scottish Cervical Screening Programme (SCSP) - test of cure management1
Cervical screening is offered to women aged 20 to 60 years of age every three years.
- Since April 2012 all women who have received treatment for CIN are tested for hrHPV at their next cervical screening test.
- 'Test of cure’ hrHPV testing is recommended 6 months after treatment.
- Women who have a LBC test that shows normal cytology and are hrHPV negative six months post treatment for CIN can be discharged to 3 year routine recall.
- Test of cure testing will be able to identify the 80% of low-risk women who are negative for hrHPV and have a negative cytology result, and can therefore be safely returned to routine recall.
