'Jade Goody Factor' Wearing Off?

26 March 2012, 00:00

Three years on from the death of reality tv star Jade Goody from cervical cancer, Heart's being told thousands of women in Norfolk still aren't going for screening for the disease.

After 27 year old mum of two Jade died back in 2009, there was a big rise in the number of women who went to get the test that can pick up cell changes which could develop into cancer if they're left.

There were reports of a noticeable increase in women going along to get themselves checked out after all the publicity over Jade's death.

The NHS in Suffolk is telling Heart it is important women don't ignore their screening invitations.
