Processing Tasks (Recalls) 


The process is largely unchanged. We have retained the code CX for all cervical screening.

  • Carry out the screening tests as appropriate. (HPV swabs if no history of abnormal tests). 
  • When results come in the task description and appropriate due dates will be reset according to the new recommendations.

Hint:  You may want to update your document template letters for Cervical smears. e.g. use the term Cervical screening rather than Cervical smears.
