Cervical Screening Tests
Women’s Health Services
The National Cervical Screening Program reduces illness and death from cervical cancer. Women aged 25 to 74 years of age are invited to have a cervical screening test every 5 years.
In a Cervical Screening Test (CST) cells from your cervix are tested for a virus called human papilloma virus or HPV. HPV is a very common virus that’s spread through sexual activity and is linked to the development of some cancers, including cervical cancer. Most people who get HPV don’t get cancer, but the link between the two makes it important to test for HPV, and if it’s there, make sure it doesn’t develop into cancer.
I’ve had the HPV vaccine, does this mean I don’t need to get screened?
The HPV vaccine protects you from some strains of HPV that cause cancer, but not all of them. So, even if you’ve had the HPV vaccine, you will still require regular Cervical Screening Tests.

PELVIC PAIN CLINIC
Endometriosis and pelvic pain are both common conditions in Australia and often underdiagnosed, with many women enduring prolonged periods of abnormal painful symptoms before receiving appropriate help.
As part of the National Endometriosis Action Plan, the Federal Government announced 22 National Centres, of which we are one, that were selected to develop an Endometriosis and Pelvic Pain clinic. The aim of these clinics is to facilitate timely access to assessment, management, referral and support for those experiencing pelvic pain due to, and exacerbated during, their periods.
With one in seven Australian women affected by endometriosis, we are pleased that we are able to expand our services to develop and provide this clinic in the Southern Highlands
