The renewal of the National Cervical Screening Program has been implemented

The two yearly Pap test for people ages 18-69 will change to a five yearly human papillomavirus (HPV) test for people aged 25-74. People will be due for the first Cervical Screening Test two years after their last Pap test. The changes include:

  • The Pap test will be replaced with the more accurate Cervical Screening test.
  • 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.
  • People aged 70 to 74 years will be invited to have an exit test.

For more information about the National Cervical Screening Program call 13 15 56 or ask your GP at your next visit.

EHealth – My Health Record

MY HEALTH RECORD OPT OUT PERIOD 16TH JULY TO 15TH OCTOBER 2018 – EXTENDED TO 15TH NOVEMBER

More than five million Australians already have a My Health record, which provides a summary of their health information, delivering better health outcomes for patients and their treating doctors and specialists.

Every Australian will have a My Health record created for them, unless they choose not to have one during the 3 months opt out period that will run from 16th July to 15th October 2018. The My Health record system and opt out process has the full support of all state and territory governments and peak bodies who unanimously agreed to this plan in August 2017 at COAG Health Council.

The protection of patient information is critical and the My Health record system has strong safeguards in place to protect the health data. It is also subject to some of the strongest legislation in the world to prevent unauthorised use.

During the opt out period individuals who do not want a record will be able to opt out by visiting the My Health record website www.myhealthrecord.gov.au or by calling 1800 723 471 for phone-based assistance. Australians can cancel their My Health record at any time after the end of the opt out period—or create one if they opted out.
