Women's health & pap clinic
Ballarat and the surrounding districts have the lowest cervical screening rates in Victoria.
BCH has responded to this by establishing several nurse-led pap test clinics based at our Lucas, Cooinda, Sebastopol and Smythesdale sites.
We have a number of qualified nurse pap test providers who are credentialed through PapScreen Victoria to provide this service.
In addition to performing pap smears, the nurse pap test provider can refer clients to other services, and provide education and health promotion around the areas of sexual and reproductive health, breast health, menopause and continence.
This clinic operates between 2:00-5:00pm on Tuesdays, for women 18 years or older. Appointments are approximately 45 minutes long.
