Interim arrangements for the National Cervical Screening Program

27 April 2017

The College has received correspondence from Chief Medical Officer Brendan Murphy outlining the interim NCSP arrangements, as well as how the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) items for cervical screening will change from 1 May until 1 December 2017.

Regular screening remains the best way to prevent cervical cancer, and women should not delay cervical screening. The National Health and Medical Research Council 2005 Screening to Prevent Cervical Cancer: Guidelines for the Management of asymptomatic women with screen-detected abnormalities (2005 Guidelines) remain in place until 30 November 2017. It is important that healthcare professionals continue to encourage women to screen under the current NCSP.
