@Nurse_Nettie when does the new cervical screening program available? I’m wondering if I should wait until the new testing procedure is in place of have a pap test done in the mean time, because I’m due for my test
Hi @Curiosity, the current advice is that its due to be launched on the 1st December 2017. I recommend that you have a pap smear test now as its due, instead of waiting. Even though it will launch at this time the role out of services and laboratories adapting to the new protocol may also cause further delays.
Wow self selection is such a cool option for those who are nervous!! Hopefully it encourages more people to try the tests. I have so many friends who have never done it because they dont want to go to a doc. Hopefully it helps make it more accessible.
