Helpful hints to keep up to date with screening

Here are some hints to help you keep up to date with regular screening

  1. Go with a group of friends or colleagues and make an outing of it by having lunch or coffee afterwards. This way you are more likely to keep your appointment.

  2. Allocate a ‘health check’ morning and organise a check-up with your GP, your dentist and BreastScreen Queensland. Remember, your breast screen will only take about 30 minutes.

  3. Make your two-yearly appointment around a date you are likely to remember, such as your birthday or an anniversary.

  4. Flexible appointment times are available with some early, late and Saturday appointments available.

  5. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us on 13 20 50.
