National Cervical Screening Program: Launch of self-collection eligibility expansion
1 July, 2022

From today, 1 July 2022, anyone eligible for a Cervical Screening Test under the NCSP (i.e. women and people with a cervix aged 25-74 years who have ever had any sexual contact) will have the choice to screen either through self-collection of a vaginal sample using a simple swab (unless a co-test is indicated), or clinician-collection of a sample from the cervix using a speculum.
