four years since you had a cervical screening test (“Pap smear”)
It’s over four years since you had a cervical screening test (“Pap smear”)
Our records indicate that we have regularly been taking care of your medical needs at Wellness on Wellington for many years. According to our file, you haven’t had a Pap smear or cervical screening test in over five years.
As you know, a cervical screening test (like a Pap smear – but better!) is the best way of detecting changes to the cervix before they turn into cancer or finding a cancer in the very early stages. It is an excellent way of maintaining good health, since delay in finding changes greatly increases the risk of dying of cancer of the cervix.
Please ring the surgery on 9780 8900 to arrange an appointment. If there are other issues which you would like addressed at the same time, please ask the receptionists to arrange a double appointment. If you are not sure how long you will need, just ask.
If you have recently had a cervical screening test already, could you still please telephone and let us know approximately when this was, so that we can amend our records and update the reminder to the correct time.
