New Pap Smear Clinic At Parkes


The Parkes Practice in NSW has been without a female Doctor since February 2015, this has caused a back log of patients with a request for PAP smears. Most patients prefer to have this service completed by a female Doctor.

During the last clinical meeting at the practice the issue was raised and Dr Christina Carroll offered to help with the shortfall until a new female doctor arrives in August 2015. Dr Carroll does not normally consult in the Parkes Practice, as she provides a much needed service to Nursing homes and other facilities locally, so we are grateful to her for addressing the need in the interim.

Reception staff have made contact with patients who are known to be waiting for a female doctor. Other patients have been advised when booking their appointments.

The first Pap smear clinic was held on Wednesday 20th May 2015 and was a great success. The clinic will now continue to run every Wednesday 10am to 2pm. This is a great outcome for the Parkes community and a job well done by all staff in working together to address an identified clinical need.
