Clinics cater to women

MOBILE women's health nurse Kath Anning will conduct clinics across the Southern Downs region this month.

The service is free and confidential, and is available to all women.

"A pap smear every two years can prevent the most common form of cervical cancer in up to 90% of cases and is the best protection against cervical cancer," Mrs Anning said.

"All women who have ever had sex should start having pap smears between the ages of 18 and 20 years, or two years after first having sex, whichever is later."

Mrs Anning also provides other services including breast awareness and sexual health testing as well as advice for issues such as continence, menopause, contraception and general wellbeing.
