I had mine done the 1st of March and had bad results wasn’t told until the 10th of June then had a colposcopy on the 21st of August ended up needing biopsy’s and now have to wait for those results it’s ridiculous and I’m in Dublin, Ireland the wait is crazy everywhere due to the backlog of the mess up I never ring to find out results I figure no news is good news try not to stress or worry yourselves

I had mine done over three months ago now, and I’m still waiting for mine too! I called my doctors surgery to ask but they said I find out by letter before they do‍♀️

At last I have received my results after 3 months. In the mean time I got another invitation letter seems like there is a long delay in Hertfordshire so why can't they put this on the letter so at least everyone knows. As both letters said I should get the results in 2 weeks when this is clearly not the case.

I agree it’s a joke says 1 to 2 weeks to wait here but I’ve heard of people waiting 6 months it’s such a stressful time to be left waiting doesn’t help

My daughter had a smear test 2 weeks ago, she rang gp surgery today and was told about delay and that it would take 15 to 18 weeks to get result. That is a wait of 4 to 5 months !!! That is totally outrageous. What if she had cancer. The NHS is getting worse since it's being privatised on the sly. Maybe the solution is to bring it to the attention of newspapers, publicise this state of affairs widely.
