We provide Pap appointments for women who do not have a family physician or who prefer a female physician, and for those who otherwise have difficulty accessing care. You do not require a referral.
We provide cervical cancer screening in the context of a "Well Woman" visit. You will be seen for a Pap smear (Papanicolau smear) only. A separate appointment should be booked with your family physician for a breast health consultation or prescription refills. The pap test will be completed according to current guidelines.
At your Well Women's "Pap" appointment we may provide:
Cervical cancer screening (Pap Tests);
Sexually Transmiited Infection (STI) testing (screening) and education;
Contraceptive (birth control) advice and management;
Height, Weight and Blood pressure screening.
Please call the Rocky PCN to book the appointment at (403) 845-3050. When you call to book an appointment, please have the following available:
Alberta Health Care number;
Full name & date of birth (as it appears on your AHC card);
Current address and telephone number.
Your appointment will be downstairs at the Rocky Medical Clinic.
You must not have your menstrual period at the time of your Pap test.
Please allow 20-30 min for your clinic visit. Patients will see the nurse first and then the physician will come into the room and do the Pap test.
If you are unable to attend your appointment, please call to cancel (even if it is the same morning).
The Rocky Primary Care Network provides telephone outreach for the Well Woman Pap Clinic. Ladies, if you haven't had a pap test done in the last 3 years, expect to hear from us.
