Rejected petition Stop the gap between cervical screening tests being increased from three years to five.

Public Health Wales have announced that they will be increasing the gap between cervical screening tests from three years to five for those who previously had a normal result.

Why was this petition rejected?

There’s already a petition about this issue. We cannot accept a new petition when we already have one about a very similar issue, or if the Petitions Committee has considered one in the last year.

Another petition calling for this is already collecting signatures:

     Reinstate cervical screening to every 3 years

You are more likely to get action on this issue if you sign and share a single petition.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards
