COVID-19 and cervical screening
What you need to know about cervical screening & COVID-19
Cervical screening and colposcopy appointments are critical health services. They will be offered across the COVID-19 traffic light system and under all three phases of the Government’s Omicron response plan.
At phases 2 and 3, colposcopy appointments continue but capacity may be impacted from region to region which may result in delays. If there are delays, your health provider will contact you to reschedule your appointment.
You will be able access cervical screening regardless of your vaccination status. You will not be asked to show a My Vaccine Pass, but you will be asked if you have COVID-19 symptoms or have recently been in contact with someone who has COVID-19. You will be asked to wear a mask.
Anyone experiencing symptoms should discuss these with their health care provider as they will prioritise appointments for urgent health needs during the COVID 19 response.
If you have any questions: Please contact your cervical screening provider or call 0800 729 729.
