Reporting cervical screening results

Arrow In this section

The laboratory provides cervical screening results to over 1,500 primary and secondary care locations and the majority of these, over 90% receive their results electronically. Electronic reports can be viewed on the ICE Desktop facility.

Viewing the electronic report rather than waiting receipt of a paper copy from the laboratory will further improve turnaround time. If you no longer require paper copy reports, contact the Labs IT Helpdesk on 0161 276 4079 or Email:

We work closely with the Cervical Screening Administration Service (CSAS) in provision of timely electronic results and generation of result letters to women who have recently attended for cervical screening. CSAS receives an electronic copy of the report to update the woman’s cervical screening history on the Exeter system.
