Zilico commit to Time to Test with Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust
Tuesday 14th September 2021
Every year in the UK, 1 in 4 women and people with a cervix don’t attend their cervical screening (smear test) appointments when they are invited. While there are many reasons it can be a difficult test for people, we know that getting an appointment around work can be a huge challenge, with 1 in 5 people reporting that they have had to use annual leave to attend an appointment.
Cervical screening is a test that saves thousands of lives every year. That’s why we’re proud to have signed up to be a Time to Test employer, and committed to ensuring all our staff have the time to test. Our employee's health is important and we want to support them to attend this appointment which can prevent cervical cancer.
Time to Test is a campaign run by Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust, the UK’s leading cervical cancer charity. They provide valuable, trustworthy information and support for anyone who has questions or wants to talk about any aspect of cervical screening and results, and are there for anyone with a cell changes or cervical cancer diagnosis.
