Cervical Screening Update 3- The Importance of Getting it Right 02-05-2017

From May 1 2017, Australia will change the screening test it uses to screen for cervical cancer. This change is being driven by the development of new testing technologies and the success of Australia's HPV vaccination program. The current Pap smear, performed every 2 years for women aged 18-70 years, will be replaced by the high-risk Human Papilloma Virus (hr-HPV) test with partial genotyping. This test will be performed every 5 years for women aged 25-70 years.

Cervical Screening Update 5- A New Era 02-05-2017

Changes to the cervical screening program planned for May 1, have been delayed until December 1, 2017. 

It is important that women due for cervical screening continue to be tested using a cytology-based Pap test. 

In order to maintain reasonable turnaround times during this period of delay, changes to Pap test rebates have been announced by the Australian Government. 

From now until November 30, 2017, GynaePath will continue to offer high-quality, Medicare rebatable, Pap smear testing.
