Culturally and linguistically diverse women

BreastScreen Queensland welcomes women from all backgrounds by providing:

  • access to interpreters
  • information in a number of languages
  • group bookings so women can attend with their friends, relatives or community members. BreastScreen Queensland can also arrange for an interpreter to be present at these bookings
  • education and information sessions from a health professional
  • after hour appointments and specially arranged service closures

If you need an interpreter, please tell our staff when making your appointment.

If you need help in your language, please call the Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS) on 131 450.
