BreastScreen NSW resumes screening following a temporary suspension of services during COVID-19 lockdowns.

A mobile van is in Boorowa until Wednesday, November 2.

Women who had their appointments cancelled when services stopped will be contacted as a priority.

BreastScreen NSW has implemented COVID-19 safe measures at its clinics and mobile screening vans to protect women, staff and the wider community.

BreastScreen NSW (Greater Southern) Designated Radiographer, Bronwyn Morley, said women who had their appointments cancelled should wait to be contacted before calling the service. “We are asking the community to be patient as we work through our priority bookings. Please hold off on contacting us unless you have received an invitation to screen,” Mrs Morley said.

“Our staff are working tirelessly to ensure women can rebook their life-saving breast screen as soon as possible.”

BreastScreen NSW requires all clients to wear a mask to their appointment. To ensure adequate physical distancing, we request that clients attend their screening appointment alone.

The service will be in Young from October 25 until November 26.
