A gift for yourself and your whānau this Mother’s Day.

Early detection through regular screening of Breast or Cervical cancer can save your life. What better gift to give yourself and your whānau this Mother’s Day.


Cervical Screening:
From 12 September 2023, the primary test for cervical screening (previously called a “smear” test) changed to a human papillomavirus (HPV) test.
The new HPV test means that people will have the choice to collect their own sample, via a simple self-test swab.
You may be eligible to have your HPV/cervical screening test done for free. More information and FAQ about cervical screening can be found here. 👇
