Women Today listen again: Taking fears out of smears, health anxiety and snoring

Dr John joined Beth and Sarah on Women Today this afternoon.

Among the issues discussed was why there has been a drop in the number of women going for smear tests.  Dr John ran through the procedure and several listeners got in touch to offer reassurance.  If you have any concerns, the advice is to speak to a health professional.

Dr John also talked about health anxiety - defined as the preoccupation with symptoms and possible illness. 

And we learnt that Dr John is a snorer but certainly not a tap dancer.
