For more information about cervical screening see HPV Screening and Cervical Cancer Prevention.
What do I need to request an appointment?
You will need your PEI Health Card and your personal contact information.
What happens after I submit a request for an appointment?
The screening service will check your requested appointment date and time and will confirm by phone, text, email or letter.
If the clinic is full, the screening service will notify you of the next available appointment.
Please do not show up at a clinic without a confirmed appointment.
What happens at an appointment?
Please arrive five minutes prior to your appointment time.
During a cervical screening test, a physician, nurse practitioner, or registered nurse will collect a small sample of cells from the cervix.
Your visit will only include a test that screens for cervical cancer. It does not replace a complete physical examination by your primary care provider.
What happens after my appointment?
The lab will analyze the sample to detect HPV strains more likely to cause cancer and send the results to your family doctor or nurse practitioner and the provincial screening service.
The screening service will then send your test results and reminders for your next screening to your mailing address. (To update your address with Health PEI, call PEI Medicare at 1-800-321-5492).
