FREE Paps in August
You read that correctly. During August, SHQ is offering FREE Pap tests. Now you’ve got no excuses!
Remember, if your Pap test is due or overdue, make an appointment ASAP. Some women are being incorrectly advised to wait until December when the new National Cervical Screening Program is rolled out, but delaying a Pap test means abnormal cells may go undetected, leaving you at greater risk of developing cervical cancer.
So what are you waiting for! Phone 9227 6177 and make your FREE appointment today.
