A Pap test can be performed by a variety of providers including a local doctor or nurse. You don’t have to visit a gynaecologist or other specialist, and it will only take a few minutes. Search for a doctor or nurse today:
You can have your Pap test performed at:
- your local doctor’s consulting rooms
- another doctor’s rooms in your area
- a community/women’s health nurse at a local health centre
- a Family Planning or sexual health clinic
- an Aboriginal Medical Service
- a gynaecologist/specialist clinic (with referral from GP).
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.
Choosing your current provider
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 tests, yet may have chosen not to be listed in our directory.
Prefer another provider?
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).
