Cervical Screening Program Changes (expected 1 December 2017):

The two yearly Pap test for women aged 18 to 69 will change to a five yearly human papillomavirus (HPV) test for women aged 25 to 74.
This will be called the  Cervical Screening Test (CST) and women will be due for the first CST two years after their last Pap test.

The changes include:

  • the Pap smear will be replaced with the Cervical Screening Test (CST)
  • the time between tests will change from two to five years
  • the age at which screening starts will increase from 18 years to 25 years
  • women aged 70 to 74 years will be invited to have an exit test
  • women will be invited when they are due to participate via the National Cancer Screening Register (due 2018)
