Cervical screening

Te whakamātau waha kōpū

Cervical screening is available at most of our clinics.

If you’re between 20 and 70 and you have a cervix, you need to have a screen every three years.

Having a screen reduces your risk of developing cervical cancer.

Cervical cancer is caused by certain types of the human papillomavirus (HPV). It is one of the most preventable of all cancers.

Your screening result will be sent to the National Cervical Screening Programme. Family Planning will send you a reminder for your next screening test, usually in three years.
