So I'm not off to Barcelona until the crack of dawn tomorrow morning, but I've done most of my packing already. Can you tell I'm excited?
But before I go I wanted to share some important information with you. On Saturday Ireland rolled out Cervical Check, a national screening programme that provides free smear tests to all women aged 25-60. All you need is your PPS number.
As it is quite new not all the practitioners who offer it are listed yet, but my local family planning clinic (IFPA) on Cathal Brugha Street offers free smear tests under this scheme. Regular smears could save your life - so if it's been more than three years since your last smear, please don't delay in booking a test.
