Women urged to put their health first
7 January 2019
Women aged 40 and over are being encouraged to make their health a priority in 2019 and book in for a free breast screen today.
"New Year's resolutions are easily forgotten when you're gearing up to get kids back to school or returning to work after holidays, but there is one you should always commit to," said BreastScreen Queensland Rockhampton health promotion officer Roxanne Hodda.
"Nothing is more important than your health, so if you're a woman aged 40 and over, and you've been planning to have your first breast screen, or are due for a two-yearly screen, call us today on 13 20 50 to book an appointment.
"This month there is an extra incentive to come to our North Street clinic for a free breast screen, as everyone who does will be in the running to win a beautiful pamper hamper."
Mrs Hodda said it was easier than ever to make an appointment with bookings now available online.
"Simply go to www.breastscreen.qld.gov.au and follow the prompts," Mrs Hodda said.
"If you need help completing the online registration just call 13 20 50 and one of our team will be happy to walk you through the process."
Women aged 40 and over should call 13 20 50, or make an appointment online, to book a free breast screen.
A doctor's referral is not required and appointments generally take less than 30 minutes.
