Following their success in  winning  the Jo’s Trust Award in 2019/20, The Cervical Screening Project Team is being recognised yet again !

The team was shortlisted for the 2020 Nursing Time Awards in the Cancer Nursing category .

Project background: 

H&F GP Federation was approached by the RM Partners (the Cancer Alliance across North West and South West London) to establish a dedicated Cervical Cancer Programme. The programme started in 2018 continuing to raise awareness as well as improve uptake for all women aged between 25 – 64, with the long-term goal of reducing the incidence of cervical cancer related deaths in Hammersmith and Fulham.

The programme targeted practices with low recorded uptake and worked with Sobus, (voluntary sector organisation representing the majority voluntary organisations in Hammersmith and Fulham) to help reach out too and engage the hard to reach groups. For more information click here
