It’s not too late to book an appointment for a breast screen in Roma

15 June 2018

BreastScreen mobile service

It’s not too late for women from the Roma district to get a breast screen while the BreastScreen Queensland mobile service is in town until 26 June.

BreastScreen Queensland Toowoomba Service health promotion officer Alexandra Robbins-Hill said the mobile service visited selected rural locations every two years, the recommended timing for most women to have their screens.

"The mobile vans include state-of-the-art digital equipment which ensures women in more rural and remote locations can conveniently access such a high-quality service," Ms Robbins-Hill said.

"This is a great opportunity for women to book in for their first breast screen, or to come back for their regular two-yearly screen.

"Early detection of women’s cancers provides the best chance of survival and quality of life, so if you haven’t been keeping up-to-date with these important checks, now is the time to do so."

Ms Robbins-Hill said all women aged 50 to 74 were encouraged to attend, although women over 40 and over 75 were still eligible.

The mobile service is located outside Nuriyn Wellness Centre at Roma Hospital.

Phone 13 20 50 to book a free breast screen with the mobile service at any of the locations listed below. A doctor’s referral is not needed.

After leaving Roma, the mobile service will be at:

  • Taroom Hospital (27 June – 4 July)
  • Wandoan Primary Health Centre (5 – 10 July)
  • Miles Hospital (11 – 20 July).
