The Cervical Screening Project was undertaken by Voice of BME-Trafford (VBME-T), commencing in the second week of February 2015 and ran for six weeks till the end of March 2015. The aim was to work intensively on creating awareness amongst women of BME communities residing within the Borough of Trafford about the need for cervical smear tests, and to increase the number of women having the test.
Methodology used was data collection Qualitative and Quantitative as well as outreach and contacting women from GP surgeries. This resulted in an increase in uptake of cervical screening in Trafford area.
This intensive project assisted the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to substantially increase the number of BME women going for smear tests. We have learnt from our study that more outreach work is required after the conclusion of this project to keep up the momentum just generated.
