WELL WOMEN'S CLINIC
The Well Women’s Clinic includes Pap smear screening, education in breast health and other women’s health issues. Preventative Pap smear screening is a high priority at Southern Forests Medical Centre. In Australia, regular screening saves more than 1,200 women from developing cervical cancer each year. The test detects abnormalities before they develop into cancer and so allows simple management.
Every woman aged between 25 to 69 years who has had intercourse should have a cervical screening (HPV) every five years. First screening should commence about one year after first sexual contact or at the age of 25 years, whichever comes first.
Regular clinics are held by our 3 female GP in addition to regular appointments. The clinics are bulk billed and are for well women only
