The National Cancer Screening Register

The renewed National Cervical Screening Program will be supported by a National Cancer Screening Register (NCSR) and operation, where test results are recorded and monitored to ensure appropriate follow up and treatment.

This provides a safety net in addition to a person's usual healthcare. For example if your Cervical Screening Test result indicates you need further investigation and treatment, and you haven’t seen a specialist, NCSR staff will follow up with you and your healthcare provider.

This makes it easy to manage your participation.

You can call the NCSR contact centre on 1800 627 701 which will enable you to:

  • Provide alternative contact details
  • Check the dates of your previous and next tests
  • Change the date of your next test
  • Choose a healthcare provider to receive your results
  • Opt out of the register

For questions about cervical screening including your results, please talk to your healthcare provider.
