Breast screening to start again in Alice Springs

Department of Health

BreastScreenNT will open for breast screening to the women of Central Australia from 10 August until 2 October 2020.

All women aged 50 to 74 years are encouraged to access this free service every two years.

“A screening only takes a few minutes and it could save your life,” said Kim Coulter, Manager of Cancer Screening Services NT.

“Women in Alice Springs can make an appointment by coming into the office or by calling 13 20 50, and there is no need to have a doctor’s referral to access this service,” she said.

“If you are a regular screener and will be due for an appointment during this time, you will receive a letter from BreastScreenNT in July/August,” Ms Coulter said.

Please ring 13 20 50 to make an appointment.

BreastScreen NT is located at Eurilpa House, Ground Floor, 25 Todd Mall, Alice Springs.
