Cervical cancer screening (Pap test) can be done by a doctor, nurse practitioner, registered nurse, midwife, or naturopathic doctor at their office or clinic.
Anyone with a cervix, including women and transgender people, between the ages of 25 and 69 should be screened for cervical cancer every three years. The test is free and only takes a few minutes of your time.
To book a screening, contact your health care provider or a medical clinic.
You can find a health care provider by:
- Using our clinic locator to find a clinic that accepts patients for Pap tests. We recommend that you call the clinic of your choice to check that Pap clinic information is accurate and up-to-date.
- Calling HealthLink BC at 8-1-1 and speaking with a Health Service Navigator. They will review options with you, including how to find a family doctor accepting new patients, accessing walk-in clinics, or finding a nurse practitioner in your community.
- Searching for a primary care provider using the Pathways Medical Care Directory.
