At Hanson Medical Centre there is always a female GP available for every woman’s medical needs. It is recommended that every female over the age of 18 attends their GP at least once every 2 years. It is also recommended that one 20 to 30 minute consultation is made in order for several examinations and discussions to be made. We provide a wide range of services and with Doctor Vajna Rafeek available full time she is more than happy to discuss any matters.
This test involves taking a small sample of cells from the cervix to be tested for cell changes. While a little uncomfortable, the Pap Test is quick and simple, and allows for the detection of cell changes which can then be treated. Women are generally screened from the ages of 18 through to 70.
During a Women’s Health Check, a breast examination is also conducted. Once women turn 50 years of age, mammogram screening is also arranged at this time.
