Private Cervical Screening Service Combining HPV Testing - Results in Just 10 Days with Kent Ayers Fertility Clinic, Dublin 2


Kent Ayers Fertility Clinic, Pembroke St. Dublin 2, has successfully launched a private Cervical Screening Service, offering women peace of mind without delay. While a free Cervical Smear scheme is available in Ireland to all women to whom it applies, the turn-around time for this public service at present may not be acceptable to women who want fast reassurance.

Said Dr. Kent Ayers, leading International Gynaecologist, and KA Fertility Practice founder “ the response to our new service would indicate that this new private service is badly needed in Ireland at present.  It is needed to speed up the process for many women who may be worried from a health perspective and who want fast results. We want to provide peace of mind by working with the best cytology laboratory in Ireland, and providing the fastest turnaround time available of 10 days”.

Dr. Kent Ayers has also confirmed that private testing does not preclude patients from public follow up if needed – a key factor in deciding on the private route for Cervical Screening.

What Makes our Cervical Screening Process Different?

  •   Direct Access to Consultant Gynecologist.
  •    Smear Tests will be carried out by Consultant versus GP
  •   Weekly Appointments – no waiting time
  •   10 Working Day Co-Testing result turnaround
  •   Co-Testing is combined testing of both standard cervical cytology sample (PAP smear) & High-Risk Human Papilloma Virus (hr-HPV)
  •  Each sample is screened by 2 independent Cytology Screeners and where required, abnormal findings are always verified by a Consultant Cytopathologist
  • ISO 15189:2012 INAB accredited Cytology Laboratory Medlab, based in Sandyford, Co. Dublin
  •   Abnormal cervical screening findings will be escalated to our extensive medical referral network for a priority appointment for further investigation

This private Cervical Screening Service incorporates standard Cytology (PAP Smear Tests) and testing for HPV Virus. Due to the increase in the HPV virus which is the now the main cause of Cervical Cancer particularly in younger women, HPV testing is an integral and mandatory part of this private screening service, as well as the more traditional PAP smear testing.  HPV can be treated effectively with early detection.  

Any abnormality detected will be escalated by our referral process for a priority follow up with a specialist consultant at a Private Hospital, or if preferred, to your GP for Public Hospital referral . For example, this may be for a colposcopy, which is an examination with a microscope and staining techniques, with an optional or appropriate biopsy if required.  Only 2% of smear tests are abnormal however. 

Testing is carried out here in Ireland by our partner laboratory MedLab Pathology in Sandyford, Co. Dublin who are certified to the highest standards and HAS approved. With a dedicated Cytology department employing leading scientists & clinicians in this sector, MedLab are devoted to maintaining and growing the vital skill sets of cytology screening in Ireland. Each sample is screened by 2 independent Cytology Screeners and where required, abnormal findings are always verified by a Consultant Cytopathologist Our long-standing relationship with our Irish partner laboratory provide patient benefits of a faster turnaround, better communications and most importantly, a traceable process.

The service costs €225 and waiting times for an appointment are usually within the same week. To book, patients can log on to / by completing an online form where contact details and medical history overview can be completed.
