Only suitably qualified doctors, nurses, nurse associates and physician associates with a professional registration are allowed to take cervical samples.

Failure to register or to update your training documentation, or inappropriate use of your PIN will be raised as a screening incident and could result in a misconduct referral to your professional body. 

If you are already registered on the London sample taker database, log-in and ensure your contact details, place of work and training documentation are up to date. 

Practice managers are responsible for checking that all staff, including locum staff, tasked with taking cervical samples comply with current guidance.
