Manage your participation

With the new Cervical Screening Test, you will continue to receive invitations and reminders to screen when you are due.

This makes it easy to take control of your health and the National Cancer Screening Register will make sure you can manage your participation wherever you are in Australia.

We will help make sure you receive the right follow up if you need it.

What can I do on the Register?

We will automatically obtain your information from Medicare. There is no need for you to take any action.
If you are eligible to participate in the National Cervical Screening Program, you will be able to:

• Review and update your personal information
• Check when you had your previous screening test and when your next screening is due
• Manage your participation (for example, if you want to nominate a healthcare provider or change your next scheduled screening test).

For these and other actions, please visit Manage your participation or call us on 1800 627 701. As a guide, when you call us we may ask you personal information to help us identify you, for example first name, date of birth and Medicare identification.

For all other questions about the screening program, including your screening test results please speak to your healthcare provider.

What happens if I don’t participate?

We will make it easy for you to take control of your health.

If you don’t wish to receive reminders from us, you can still have your Cervical Screening Test with your healthcare provider.

You may choose to cease correspondence or opt out. However this means you will not be invited or reminded to screen or receive the right follow up if you need it.
