Every year in the UK, around 3,000 women will be diagnosed with cervical cancer. 1 in 4 women across the UK do not attend cervical screening when invited - and this number is rising.
As part of our commitment to the health and wellbeing of our team we want our female employees to have the time to attend this potentially life-saving test. We want to make sure they can attend cervical screening, even if it means doing so during their working day. We are proud to be supporting the Time to Test campaign, and have offered our female employees an additional half days' leave to prioritise their health and book in their appointments.
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, reduce the barriers to screening and ensure more women can have the #TimeToTest.
