    During a four-year period 1,169 women attended a well-woman clinic in a group practice. Eight positive smears were detected, together with one case of breast carcinoma, 94 cases of anaemia, and a number of other abnormalities. The clinic is part of a practice cervical-screening programme aimed at regular tests for women in the practice aged between 25 and 64. Patients appear to prefer attending screening clinics run by their own family doctor, and if more practices would adopt such a programme a higher proportion of the female population might be screened, and at a lower cost.
