11 May 2020

BreastScreen NSW is now open and preparing to resume breast screening from 18 May 2020. 

  • It may take a few weeks before all screening clinics across the state are open as capacity is impacted by the redeployment of staff and the requisitioning of clinics.
  • Women who had their appointments cancelled will be prioritised and contacted directly, as soon as possible, to reschedule their appointment. 
  • BreastScreen NSW will be asking women to wait for their invitation before contacting them.
  • BreastScreen NSW is taking all necessary steps to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our clients and staff during this time and is not anticipating any disruption to the screening pathway.
  • BreastScreen NSW recommends women who develop breast symptoms speak with their GP without delay and symptomatic women should be referred to a specialist clinic or breast surgeon.

BreastScreen NSW will provide regular updates to Basecamp, its website (https://www.breastscreen.nsw.gov.au/news/) and Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=breastscreen%20nsw%20-%20nsw%20gov) about our breast screening service.
