Public Health statement on the Jersey Cervical Screening campaign

24 January 2023

Public Health statement in relation to the Government of Jersey Cervical Screening campaign.

Director of Public Health Professor Peter Bradley said:

"I am thankful to the Islanders who have fronted our Cervical Screening campaign, which includes targeted messaging and spokespeople to maximise the reach to Islanders eligible for Cervical Screening.

"Yesterday we shared a post featuring Vic Tanner, Honorary CEO of Liberate, the Channels Islands' equality and diversity charity, a transgender man who was born with a cervix. This post has been met with criticism regarding the terminology used to describe those who are eligible for screening.

"This specific post was aimed at the transgender community, gender non-conforming people and those assigned female at birth who may not identify as such, who are at risk for cervical cancer too.

"The inclusive campaign, which features four local spokespeople, three women and one transgender man, invites all eligible Islanders to attend their cervical screening appointments.

"This includes all women, transgender men, people assigned female at birth but no longer identify as such, and gender non-conforming people, who are aged between 25 and 64.

"Cervical screenings are important in identifying abnormalities that may cause cancer. I encourage everyone who is eligible for their screening to opt in by contacting their GP or Le Bas Centre on 01534 443781."
