Due to a shortage of flu vaccine supplies we are unable to invite all patients who are eligible in the 50-64 age group category and therefore we have prioritised patients in that age group with health conditions.  If you are in this age group and do wish to have a flu vaccine and have not heard from us, local pharmacies are providing these free of charge.  If we do obtain further vaccines for this age group, we will contact you.

Share your views on Cervical Screening

North Gosforth and Jesmond Lower Gosforth PCNs are working together to address health inequalities in our area.

One focus is on cervical screening, where uptake of appointments has declined in recent years.

We want to understand why this is and see what we can do to encourage more people to be screened.

Understanding your perspectives

We are asking women and people with a cervix aged 25 to 64 to share their views by taking a short online survey, taking no more than 5 minutes.

I’ll take the survey.

Why Cervical Screening is Important

Every day in the UK, two people die from cervical cancer.

It’s a highly preventable disease, with screening for early risk signs and subsequent treatment able to prevent nearly all chances of cancer developing.

Despite this, fewer people are getting screened every year.

In 2011, the rate was 73.7%. Ten years later, in 2021, the rate had fallen to 68%. More than 3 in ten women or people with a cervix are now not getting regularly screened.

Share your views on screening, public health campaigns and the types of messages and communications you like by taking our survey.

Creating a new Campaign

By understanding your experiences with cervical screening, and your preferences and opinions on how you like to be communicated with, we will create a new health campaign based on the answers you give us.

Responders can choose to continue to be involved in the project beyond filling out the survey.

We’ll share the findings with those who would like to receive them, along with drafts of new communications that you can give feedback on.

We’ll do this via email using a separate sign-up process from collecting the survey data, and none of your personal data will be used to march you to your responses.
