General practitioner electronic recommendation forms
Women do not need a referral to attend a BreastScreen Queensland service, however research demonstrates that a general practitioner's recommendation is highly influential in a woman's decision to attend for a screening mammogram.
Women aged 50-74 years are strongly encouraged to have a free breastscreen every two years. Women aged 40-49 and those over 75 are also eligible to have a free breastscreen.
The electronic referral forms for general practitioners are available for the following softwares:
- Best Practice
- Medical Director
The BreastScreen Queensland Program has a range of printed resources available free of charge.
You can view and order some of the resources by clicking on resources for health professionals, then click on Publications on the menu bar to access the Cancer Screening – Breast catalogue.
