  • You will receive a call from us with any changes to your appointment.
  • Masks are required to be worn at all times on WCH property. This includes, but is not limited to, parking areas, elevators and while waiting to be screened.

NOTE: The drop-in Pap program (Wednesdays 4 - 7 p.m.) is temporarily closed. Please contact the Bay Centre for more information.

We have developed a weekly drop-in program available to anyone in need of a Pap test. The program runs on Wednesday evenings from 4 - 7 p.m. If you have a health card you must bring it. If you do not have a health card please bring insurance, interim federal health paperwork or photo identification with you.

The program is run by nurses. As a result, patients are asked to visit the drop-in program only when they are not experiencing symptoms that would require the immediate attention of a physician.

Anyone with a cervix or internal genitals that has ever been sexually active and is between the ages of 25 to 70 should have a regular Pap test every three years, to be screened for cervical cancer. This includes all people with a cervix or internal genitals regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation. After the age of 70, people who have had three normal Pap tests in the past 10 years can stop screening.

For more information on the drop-in Pap program, please contact us at 416-351-3700 or BCBC@wchospital.ca.
