Cervical screening

Cervical screening investigations (formerly ‘pap smear’) are requested from the patient record like other pathology investigation requests.

However, cervical screening results must be manually added to the Cervical screening section of the patient record, rather than being allocated from the Investigation reports screen and actioned from the provider Inbox. Cervical screening requests are still listed in the Investigation requests screen.

Staff who are not doctors, such as nurses, can also add results and reminders outside of the patient record from the Clinical > Cervical Screeningscreen.

Bp Premier introduced changes to cervical screening testing to support the new National Cervical Screening Program from December 1 2017.
