Colposcopy is an integral part of the NHS Cervical-Screening programme involving the assessment of cervical abnormalities, the treatment of identified abnormalities and the implementation of follow up care.

A colposcopy is a procedure where the lining of the cervix is examined. The procedure is carried out by a colposcopist who uses an instrument called a colposcope to check the cells that line the cervix for abnormalities.
