South Tees Hospitals NHS Trust releases the Cervix Visual Assessment Guide
The Cervix Visual Assessment Guide (CVAG) is designed to assist primary care health professionals with the assessment and evaluation of the cervix. The CVAG is a visual educational tool developed by health professionals specialising in colposcopy and gynaecology.
In response to local trust audit results and regional colposcopy data they suggest some primary health workers’ have little experience of recognising the signs and symptoms of invasive cancer of the cervix. Subsequently, a significant number of women are referred to oncology and colposcopy clinics with suspected cancer of the cervix in the absence of disease.
