Walgett Cervical Screening Project

Walgett Aboriginal Medical Service, in partnership with Family Planning NSW, is rolling out a cervical screening project to women in the Walgett Shire area. We want to find out the best way to screen women for cervical cancer and help save lives.

All women from Walgett aged 25-50 who have not had a cervical screening before, or had screening two or more years ago, are invited to take part. Regular cervical screening tests are the best way to stay healthy for you, your family and your community.

Upcoming clinic dates and times:

Monday 19th November - 9am - 5pm
Tuesday 20th November - 9am - 5pm
Wednesday 21st November - 9am - 12pm
Walgett AMS 37 Pitt Street, Walgett NSW 2832

*Please note the clinic will be closed from 1-2 each day.
