Community Champions – Cervical Screening Findings


Healthwatch Kirklees has worked in partnership with (Third Sector Leaders) Community Champions to reach over 2000 people to tackle:

  • Cervical screening and cervical cancer risk factors/symptoms awareness

  • The challenges and barriers to accessing cervical screening services and support

In this report, you’ll find information about:

  • Community-specific strategies addressing barriers and concerns raised around cervical screening. Recommendations to:
    • Collaborate with local leaders and organisations for culturally sensitive approaches, including multilingual and accessible resources.
    • Develop campaigns targeting different age groups to address barriers, specific fears and practical issues.
  • Collaborative Healthcare Networks. Recommendations to:
    • Provide additional cervical screening support for Health Inclusion Groups and ensure that vulnerable populations receive targeted support and information.
    • Collaborate with local voluntary and support organisations to provide specialised assistance for those needing it.
