The Well Women’s Clinic includes cervical screening, education in breast health and other women’s health issues. Preventative cervical screening is a high priority at Collie River Valley Medical Centre. In Australia, regular screening saves more than 1,200 women from developing cervical cancer each year. The test detects abnormalities before they develop into cancer and so allows simple management.
Every woman aged between 25 to 75 years who has had intercourse should have a cervical screening every 5 years. First screening should commence at age 25 years or younger if sexual activity occurred prior to receiving the HPV vaccine.
The clinics are held by Sharon Varis who is fully trained by Sexual Health Quarters of WA. This is within the consult of one of the two senior GPs.
Clinic days are on Thursdays from 9am to 1pm. Appointments outside clinic days can be arranged.
This service is bulk billed and is for well women only. If you have gynaecology or breast symptoms, please book an appointment with your doctor.
