From 1 December 2017 the two yearly Pap test for women aged 18-69 will be replaced by the 5 yearly Cervical Screening Test for women aged 25-74. This new test will improve early detection and save more lives. The procedure for collecting the sample for a Cervical Screening Test will be the same as the procedure for having a Pap test.
If you think you may be due for your Cervical Screening Test, make an appointment with one of our experienced nurses today by calling 6247 3077, during office hours.
