You can have your Pap test performed at:
Choose the health practitioner and location that will make you feel most comfortable. You may prefer having a female doctor or nurse perform the test, or you may require only that your doctor is experienced and sensitive.
If you wish to have your regular doctor/nurse perform your Pap test, call and make an appointment, and check at the same time that your provider does perform Pap tests. It is possible that your GP does perform Pap test - yet may have chosen not to be listed in our directory.
If you’d prefer another doctor or nurse, or if your provider isn’t experienced in performing Pap tests, you can use the directory to search for another health professional in your area.
(If your selected practice employs a Practice Nurse, the text 'Nurses trained in cervical screening available here' will appear underneath the doctors names listed).Top of page
