St Leonard’s pledging support to Time to Test

We are pledging our support to the Jo's Trust Time to Test campaign. 
 
By doing this, we are demonstrating our commitment to raising awareness of cervical cancer prevention in our workplace and ensuring our female employees can access cervical screening.
 
The health of our employees comes first and if employees cannot make appointments out of working hours, we will find a way to make sure they can attend cervical screening, even if it means doing so during their working day.
 
Cervical cancer is a life-threatening disease but one that is largely preventable thanks to screening and vaccination. 1 in 4 women across the UK do not attend cervical screening when invited and this number is rising, so we want to play our part in reversing this.
 
We are proud to add our voice to the campaign which calls on employers across the UK, regardless of size or industry, to raise awareness of cervical cancer, help reduce the barriers to screening and ensure more women can have the Time to Test. 

We are also extending this pledge to include bowel and breast screening too.
