BreastScreen NSW Hunter New England
BreastScreen NSW Hunter New England is part of BreastScreen Australia, a national program for the early detection of breast cancer. Breastscreen NSW Hunter New England provides free, high quality screening mammograms for women aged 40 years or over. Women aged 50 to 69 years are particularly encouraged to attend.
Clinical trials have shown that regular mammograms reduce deaths from breast cancer. Mammograms can detect breast cancer when it is very small, when treatment is most effective.
BreastScreen NSW has two Screening and Assessment Centres in Newcastle and Tamworth. The Newcastle centre is based at the NBN Telethon Mater Institute, Calvary Mater Newcastle, Waratah. Four mobile screening units provide screening services over an area of 130 000 square kilometers.
To make an appointment for your free screening mammogram, please call 13 20 50.
