Some key points from the MOH re: the age change from 1st November 2019.
If practices are screening women outside of the current guideline recommendations, a clinical rationale should be provided on the laboratory form.


There has been no change from the Ministry as to the criteria for eligibility for a free smear.


Unsure of something? Feel free to contact me at the PHA and I will advise/find out answer for you.
