From 1 July 2022, the National Cervical Screening Program (NCSP) will expand Cervical Screening Test sample collection options, offering clinician collection or self-collection as a choice to all people participating in cervical screening.

The Cancer Institute NSW and Royal College of General Practitioners are partnering in a one-hour webinar (date) to educate General Practitioners about the change to the self-collection policy and the critical role that General Practitioners play in supporting this change. The webinar will additionally include education on the clinical management of women at intermediate risk in the NCSP.
