Cervical Screening by certified
We are excited to announce our new nurse-led cervical screening clinic.
Now available at MyLife Medical for only $40 out of pocket. See below for further information.
Ann-Marie has developed an interest in women’s health and the importance of screening and education to prevent cervical cancer.
This led to her completing a certificate in cervical screening; which she can now provide this service to our patients.
One of the many benefits of using our service is that you do not need to see a GP, saving time and allowing you more flexibility with appointment times.
Cervical screening test appointments are available to all female patients (existing only) for a set fee of $40 out of pocket (as you do not need to see a GP, there will be no Medicare rebate).
A Nurse and GP will review your results and contact you via phone or post (typically 1-3 weeks following your appointment and depending on laboratory processing times).
The National Cervical Screening Program currently recommends that all women and people with a cervix between the ages of 25 to 74 years, who have ever been sexually active, attend a clinic for a cervical screening test every five years (or more often depending on your results).
You should still have a CST even if you have had the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)/ cervical cancer vaccine in the past.
If you are due for your five-yearly (low-risk) screening test, you are eligible for a self-collect sample. However, clinician-collected samples remain the preferred method (by laboratories and clinicians) as they are suitable for further testing as needed. Our nurses are happy to discuss eligibility and facilitate self-collection if this is your preferred choice.
If you are not sure when you are due or what your last test result was, please call and ask to speak to one of our nurses.
