The first sentence of this news story by Annabel Ferriman (12 May, p 1141) should have read: “An audit of cervical cancer screening in Leicestershire has shown that 1 in 3 women who developed invasive cancer and who had had a cervical smear was given a misleading result.” The sentence incorrectly said: “An audit of cervical cancer screening in Leicestershire has shown that 1 in 3 women who go for screening may be given an incorrect result.” We apologise for the error.
