Cervical screening in Australia will change in 2017

The Department of Health has advised that the new National Cervical Screening Program (the Renewal) has a revised implementation date of 1st December 2017. Contrary to previous indications, no transition period is planned. Tasmanian Medical Laboratories will endeavour to advise practitioners with regards to any further updates. The Cytology Audit will continue until the National Cervical Screening Program changes come into effect.
