BreastScreen bus heading to New Norfolk

THE BreastScreen Tasmania Mobile Unit will return to New Norfolk next month. The free service gives women aged over 40 the opportunity to make an appointment for a mammogram which can detect cancer in its early stages. The mobile unit last visited New Norfolk in 2016.

BreastScreen Tasmania is part of a national program that aims to continue to reduce deaths from breast cancer through early detection of the disease. The service provides a free screening mammogram every two years to women between the age of 50 and 74 years throughout Tasmania.

While women in the target age group are particularly encouraged to participate, all women over the age of 40 years are eligible for the program.

From July 16 until August 3, the BreastScreen Tasmania Mobile Unit will be available at the car park adjacent to the library in Charles St, New Norfolk. Appointments can be made by calling 13 20 50. Click here for more information.
