Life Saving Wax - the new campaign to increase cervical screenings

A new campaign to improve cervical screening rates has launched - with the aim of getting more women to book smear tests and check-ups. 

The latest approach has targeted beauty salons - with hundreds of centres across the UK signing up to the so-called "Life Saving Wax" initiative, created by Public Health England and Treatwell.

Public Health England says current rates for screenings are the lowest they've been in 20 years.

Dr Zoe Williams and Love Island's Cara De La Hoyde told us the importance of getting your smear test, while Masters student Isha told us about her experiences after being told she had abnormal cells.
