About BreastScreen NSW

An overview of the BreastScreen NSW service.

What is the BreastScreen NSW Program?

At BreastScreen NSW, we aim to improve the survival rates of women with breast cancer by providing free screening mammograms to women aged 50-74. Women aged 40-49 and women aged 75+ are also eligible to attend.  

BreastScreen NSW is part of the national BreastScreen Australia program, which is jointly funded by the Commonwealth, and state and territory governments.

This service aims to detect breast cancer early, before it has a chance to spread. Early detection of cancer increases the treatment options available and improves the chance of survival.

The BreastScreen NSW Coordination Unit is managed by the Cancer Institute NSW. The program is delivered by nine Screening and Assessment Services, which are located and managed within Local Health Districts.
