Women Out West

ACCF is partnering with the Western NSW Local Health District to provide a pop-up cervical screening clinic. The ‘Women Out West’ clinic will be held on September 6 and 7 at the Lightning Ridge Bowling Club, with all women and people with a cervix from Lightning Ridge and surrounding areas invited for cervical screening and to find out more about cervical cancer prevention.

The clinic is being held as part of Women’s Health Week. The theme of ‘grow your knowledge’, aims to empower women to make informed decisions about their health through easy to understand information.

If you are in the Lightning Ridge area, we would love for you to come along.
