WELCOME TO OUR CERVICAL SCREENING CLINIC
PRIVATE CERVICAL SCREENING SERVICE COMBINING HPV TESTING – RESULTS IN JUST 10 DAYS WITH KENT AYERS FERTILITY CLINIC, DUBLIN 2.
Dr. Kent Ayers is a leading International Gynaecologist, passionate about women’s health. In response to the many women of Ireland who are waiting for cervical checks, or results, Kent Ayers Cervical Screening Clinic is re-opening from Monday 15th June at our new Clinic Suite 1, The Mall, Beacon Court, Sandyford, D18 PV34. While a free Cervical Smear scheme is available in Ireland to all women to whom it applies, this National Screening PRogramme is currently paused due to Covid 19. When the service resumes, the turn-around time for results may not be acceptable to women who want fast reassurance, so we welcome any new patient that wants Rapid Results & Peace of Min.
Dr. Kent Ayers has also confirmed that private testing does not preclude patients from public follow up if needed – a key factor in deciding on the private route for Cervical Screening.
What Makes our Cervical Screening Process Different?
Direct Access to Consultant Gynecologist versus GP
10 Working Day Co-Testing result turnaround
Co-Testing is combined testing of both standard cervical cytology sample (PAP smear) & High-Risk Human Papilloma Virus (hr-HPV)
Each sample is screened by 2 independent Cytology Screeners and where required, abnormal findings are always verified by a Consultant Cytopathologist
ISO 15189:2012 INAB accredited Cytology Laboratory based in Dublin
Abnormal cervical screening findings will be escalated for further investigation by our Consultant directly to our extensive Private Hospital specialists for a priority appointment, or if preferred, to your GP for a Public Hospital referral
The risk of developing cervical cancer cannot be reduced to zero with any of the currently available screening tests. Both Co-Testing and primary hr-HPV testing are more sensitive and have a higher negative predictive value than cytology screening alone. However less than 2% of results are abnormal and can be treated effectively with early detection
Our Accredited Cytology Partners
Testing is carried out here in Ireland by our partner laboratories MedLab Pathology and Eurofins Biomnis Ireland both based in Sandyford, Co. Dublin , and certified to the highest standards, with a dedicated Cytology department employing leading scientists & clinicians in this sector. Our Partners are devoted to maintaining and growing the vital skill sets of cytology screening in Ireland.
Our long-standing relationship with our Irish partner laboratories provide patient benefits of a faster turnaround, better communications and most importantly, a traceable process.
