It is now two years since Sunderland resident Amber Rose Cliff tragically lost her life to cervical cancer at the age of just 25.
A campaign launched in Amber’s memory by members of her family – calling for changes to NHS cancer screening guidance – is a cause I fully support.
Whatever a woman’s age or screening history, if they notice symptoms of cervical cancer and request a test from their GP, it is only right that their concerns are listened to.
Amber’s case shows that smear tests need to be made more readily available in certain circumstances, such as when young women present more than once with potential problems.
