Why screen and where to go

Almost all cervical cancer is caused by human papillomavirus (HPV). The virus is spread by sexual activity. Eighty percent of people who have been sexually active will have an HPV infection at some point in their lives. But with regular cervical screening any changes on the cervix can be detected and treated before they become cancers.

Cervical cancer is one of the easiest cancers to prevent – as long as we detect the cell changes that cause it, early. And guess what? New Zealand has one of the best cervical screening programmes in the world to help you.  Click here to find out more about our screening programmes. 

It's completely up to you who takes your screen. You can choose to go to your regular doctor or find a doctor here.

Your Te Tai Tokerau Northland Cervical Screening Team can also help you find someone to take your cervical screen.
Give us a call on freephone 0800 729 729 or email NCSP.RegisterNorthland@northlanddhb.org.nz
