Early Detection is Key – It Saves Lives

Don’t miss the opportunity to book a free screening mammogram as the BreastScreen NSW mobile unit returns to the Mid North Coast next month.

The mobile screening van will be at Kempsey District Hospital from 4 February to 7 March and from 25 March to 13 May.

The mobile unit will also return to Nambucca Heads and Bellingen next month, with free screening available between 6 March and 21 March at Bellwood Park, Nambucca Heads, and between 21 March and 27 March at the Bellingen Showground.

The service is free for all women over the age of 40, however, women aged 50 to 74 years are actively encouraged to attend for screening.

Appointments take only 20 minutes. No referral is necessary.  To book a screen­ing mammogram call 13 20 50 now!
