Mobile Women's Health Service

Mobile Women's Health Service

The Mobile Women's Health Service is made up of specially trained registered nurses who provide a free and confidential service for women across Queensland, including Wide Bay. The service aims to improve the health and wellbeing of women in rural and remote areas of Queensland.

We support all women, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and those from multicultural backgrounds.

National Cervical Screening Program

The National Cervical Screening Program has now changed. Since December 1, 2017, the Pap test has been replaced by a HPV test.

These changes are a result of new evidence, better technology and will help improve early detection of cervical cancer and save lives.

The new National Cervical Screening Program:

  • invites women to participate in the National Cancer Screening Register
  • replaces the Pap test with the more accurate Cervical Screening Test
  • invites women aged 25 to 74 years to undertake the test
  • increases the time between tests from two years to five years

The new Cervical Screening Test:

  • is now available on the Medicare Benefits Schedule
  • is expected to prevent an additional 140 cervical cancers each year
  • will complement Australia’s HPV vaccination program for boys and girls.

More information on the screening program is available here.

For more information on the National Cancer Screening Register – which provides a single electronic record for Australians participating in cervical and bowel screening – go to the NCSR website.
