Healthcare professionals, carers or family can use this leaflet to discuss cervical screening with a woman who has learning disabilities.

Screening providers can use the easy guide in conjunction with the cervical screening easy read invitation letter template to invite women with learning disabilities for screening.

Providers can also direct people who cannot read or do not like written words to the Beyond Words cervical screening picture story, which includes a suggested storyline for family members, carers or health professionals to refer to.
