Here’s how you can help us when attending your appointment:
Stay at home if you are unwell
Wear a mask to your appointment
Only enter the clinic 5 minutes before your scheduled appointment
Attend your appointment alone
Stay a safe distance from others
Be patient and kind, we are in this together.
In line with advice from NSW Health, BreastScreen NSW strongly encourages women to be triple vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as possible, ideally before attending their breast screen appointment. Visit NSW Health for more information.
It is now mandatory for all NSW Health staff to be vaccinated.
Importantly, we encourage you to be breast aware and if you find a breast change that is unusual for you, contact your regular doctor without delay.
