Find the NSW 2000 - Breastscreen NSW

BreastScreen NSW has located 2000 women aged 50-74 who have breast cancer and don't know it because they haven't had a mammogram.

Approximately 120 of these women are living in the PHN catchment:

  • 50 in Canterbury 
  • 50 in Sydney City
  • 20 In Bondi

BreastScreen SLHD has embarked upon a campaign to find the Canterbury 50 urging women in Canterbury who have not had their recommended screening mammograms to get screened at BreastScreen NSW.

There are 50 women in the Canterbury area, aged 50-74, that may have breast cancer and not know it. This is because over 8,000 women between the ages of 50 and 74 have not had their recommended screening mammogram in the past 2 years.

BreastScreen SESI is also campaigning to find the Bondi 20. In particular, the service is encouraging Russian and Spanish speaking GPs in the area to remind women to have their regular, two-yearly mammogram. The Sunflower Clinic in Myer Bondi Junction is the closest screening site.

Together, we need to find these women and ensure they have a mamogram. Detecting their breast cancers in the early stages will give them the best chance of surviving it, plus treatment is less invasive for breast cancers found early.

The BreastScreen service has eight fixed sites across the PHN catchment, including the Sunflower clinic in Westfield Bondi Junction ( pdf click here for more information (336 KB) ), the Rose Clinic in David Jones Elizabeth St, and the new Campsie clinic ( pdf click here for a map (150 KB) ).

The service is always free, is performed by female rediographers, and takes only 20 minutes.
