Cervical Screening Program
From 1 December 2017, cervical screening will change in Australia.
The Pap test will be replaced with a new Cervical Screening Test every five years.
New evidence and better technology mean the new Cervical Screening Test will improve early detection and save more lives. Your first Cervical Screening Test is due two years after your last Pap test. After that, you will only need to have the test every five years if your results are normal.
If you are due for testing, contact our friendly reception staff on 02 6655 1755 to book an appointment.
For more information, you can call 131 556 or go to cancerscreening.gov.au/cervical
