Healthcare Provider Portal

The Healthcare Provider Portal provides a self-service alternative for health professionals to access and submit screening data for the bowel and cervical screening programs.

Lowered eligible age for bowel screening

From 1 July 2024, people aged 45 to 49 can join the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program.


You can request a kit for an eligible patient via the Healthcare Provider Portal or issue them a kit via the alternative access to kits model. Alternatively, you or your patient can request a kit by submitting a webform or calling 1800 627 701.

How to gain access:

Access can be provided to:

  • Healthcare professionals with a Medicare provider number (MPN),
  • Nurses and medical practice/lab staff without a MPN acting as a delegate of a healthcare provider with a MPN, or
  • Nurses and healthcare workers using a Register Identifier Number – a unique number to authenticate cervical screening test providers not eligible for an MPN.

To access the portal, you will need a PRODA account. PRODA (or Provider Digital Access) is an online identity verification and authentication system used to enable secure access to government online services.
