We currently have two healthcare providers dealing specifically with Women’s Health – Dr Jenny Chong (once a month on a Saturday or Sunday morning) and Karen Bellchambers, a highly experienced Registered Nurse/Midwife (available fortnightly on Sunday mornings). Please call us on 8300 7200 for specific availability.

 

We offer a range of women’s health services including but not limited to:

 

  • Cervical Screening Tests (formerly Pap smears)
  • Breast screening examinations
  • Implantable contraception insertion & removal
  • Pregnancy testing
  • Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) screening
  • Dealing with Menopause symptoms

The Pap test has changed: More Accurate. Less Often.

 

Based on new evidence and better technology, the National Cervical Screening Program (NCSP) changed on 1 December 2017 to improve early detection and save more lives.

 

The two yearly Pap test for women aged 18 to 69 is now a five yearly human papillomavirus (HPV) test for women aged 25 to 74. Women are due for their first Cervical Screening Test two years after their last Pap test, after which they can move to 5 yearly screening.
