Hammersmith and Fulham GP Federation recently won a national award for their work in raising awareness of cervical screening as the borough was identified as one that has the lowest uptake rates in England.

The Team reached out to the community in the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham by working with most GP Practices through engaging with diverse groups and organisations in the borough. The aim was to target those that have not attended appointment when invited. Since 2018, over 1000 women attended a screening appointment as a result.

The initiative was supported by working in collaboration with RM Partners, Sobus, the west London Cancer Alliance hosted by The Royal Marsden.
