Those who have a long term condition are offered care plans, which is used to decide future health intervention. E.g. someone who knows they are dying from cancer may make their wishes known to die at home and not in a hospital. A patient with Diabetes may have advice on how to spot complications arising and can notify clinicians early if they have any symptoms.
It is preferable to take the smear during the middle of your cycle. You will be recalled every 3 years up to the age of 50, then at 5 yearly intervals, unless you have had any previous problem.
