Tips for your BreastCheck appointment

Thanks for accepting your invitation to have your free BreastCheck mammogram, here are some useful tips for your appointment: 

  • Your appointment will take about half an hour, and you’ll be asked a few questions about your health

  • If you use deodorant, please use sparingly
  • If you can’t keep the appointment, please phone and we will try to arrange a new appointment at a time that suits you
  • Let us know if you have any questions, we want you to be comfortable and relaxed during your mammogram
  • If you have any special needs please let us know in advance, all units are fully accessible to people with disabilities
  • We will post your results to you within three weeks. Your family doctor (GP) will also be sent a copy of the results
