Beaufort and Skipton Health Service have a number of PapScreen Clinic’s running throughout the year, some specifically held out of usual business hours for more convenience.
PapScreen Clinics are located in:
Beaufort just off the Western Highway on Havelock Street, Beaufort and in
Skipton just off the Glenelg Highway on Blake Street, Skipton
So, if it's more than 2 years since your last Pap test, or if you have never had a Pap test, make an appointment now. Most women diagnosed with cervical cancer haven't had regular Pap tests - also known as Pap smears. PapScreen Victoria encourages all women aged 18-70 who have ever been sexually active to have a Pap test every 2 years, even after the cervical cancer vaccine.
"Pap tests. A little awkward for a lot of peace of mind." - PapScreen Victoria
