Cervical screening is the ultimate act of self-care

If you’re aged 25 to 74, and have a cervix, you need to have a Cervical Screening Test every five years.

Unfortunately, over half of eligible Victorians aged 25 to 34 are missing out on lifesaving cervical screening. You don’t have to be old to get cervical cancer; cervical screening is the best way to protect yourself and look after your health for the future.

The information on this website will prepare you for cervical screening, to make sure you are ready for your test.

Your body, your choice. You can book a Cervical Screening Test with other health professionals who do cervical screening. Visit our directory of cervical screening providers across Victoria to find one that meets your needs.
