It is a success of the operation launched by Bau Hospital on the occasion of “Green June”. The initiative consisted in making it available Slots for appointments with a hospital gynecologist, without delay. It was distributed over half a day, June 13 and 27. Appointments are open to women between the ages of 45 and 65 who are not regularly followed up by a health professional. The goal is Raising awareness and encouraging cervical cancer screening. Except that all appointments were booked for one afternoon.
3000 women are affected by cervical cancer each year
There were only 25 places available and everything was booked up within hours. Thus 25 women will be able to benefit from these private meetings. These are women between the ages of 45 and 65, who rarely visit a gynecologist and will have the opportunity to undergo screening for cervical cancer. The interest in this process is clearly to encourage patients to have a more regular follow-up. It’s also a matter of making things a little easier since there are practitioners who don’t deal with new patients and then, Sometimes you have to wait at least 6 months to make an appointment with a gynecologist in Pau.
Some may regret that the initiative is limited to half a day. Bau Hospital is trying to figure out how to extend the operation. According to data provided by Bau Hospital, Nearly 90% of cervical cancers can be prevented through screening Normal.
