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 Since December 1, 2017, the Pap test has been replaced by a HPV test.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.
