Access to breast screening services expanded (November 2012)

Women under 40 who are at an increased risk of breast cancer will have access to specialist screening services under a new policy announced by the Newman Government.  Under the new policy, the Breast Cancer Family History Clinic on Brisbane’s northside will receive an additional $400,000 in funding to support women at high risk of familial breast cancer.  The funding will go towards hiring an additional nurse and radiographer and will enable 350 women to be screened or re-screened each year.  It will become the only clinic in Queensland offering state-wide, multi-modality screening services for women at high risk.  Women can book their breastscreen by simply calling 12 20 50.
