Welcome to Monkfield Medical Practice
Over 1.2 million people are not taking up their invite each year for a smear test. While they may not be pleasant, smear tests prevent 75% of cervical cancers, so they are important! If yours is overdue or you think you've not had one in a while, call to check and book!
We can now offer appointments after hours and weekends at the four extended access hubs, Nuffield Road, Comberton, St Mary's in Ely and Granta who are offering the extended hours service. These can be booked through us for routine appointments, please enquire when you call or read about what they can offer on the extended hours social media websites below.
The labs have notified us that we are currently facing a 12 week waiting list for results of smears. You will be sent the results directly when they come through so please don't call the surgery to chase these up.
