A cervical smear nurse shows kindness

White text reads "we can end cervical cancer" with the word "we" and the "can" of cancer highlighted in pink.

Smear tests don’t have to be scary as C, who’s neurodivergent, shared with me: “They talked me through it, it was painless for me when it’s hurt previously. The nurse held my hand because she could tell I was anxious and pulled my mask down as she could see I was struggling and I’d already said I might need to pull it down take it off at some point because they make me feel claustrophobic and are a sensory nightmare for me which gets worse when I’m anxious.”

What a compassionate and kind nurse, I know there are plenty of them out there too.
