What happens once I have registered?

Once you have registered you will receive a welcome note by SMS (this may take up to 7 days). You will be asked to reply to the message (free of charge) following simple steps. Once your reply is sent, you will have successfully subscribed to the service. From there on, if you fall within the prescribed age margins mentioned above, Sunflower will send you an SMS every year in English or Greek depending on your choice of language reminding you to take your tests.

The Sunflower system expects you to respond to the SMS text message and reply by pressing 'PAP 1' as a positive answer meaning that you did your test or pressing 'PAP 2' meaning that you did not do your test and 'PAP 3' that you would like to be reminded again in a short time of 2 weeks.

The 3-letter code, in the example above 'PAP' is the code in the SMS that you receive. For example, it will be 'PAP' for the PAP test, MAM for mammography and so on.
