BreastScreen Tasmania is part of BreastScreen Australia – a national breast screening program that aims to continue to reduce deaths from breast cancer through early detection of the disease.

BreastScreen Tasmania provides a free screening mammogram every two years to women between the age of 50 and 74 years throughout Tasmania. While women in the target age group are particularly encouraged to participate, all women over the age of 40 years are eligible for the program.

There are two permanent clinics:

There are also two mobile units that visit rural and remote locations across the state. Each year, approximately 30,000 women have a breast screening mammogram through BreastScreen Tasmania.

Are you aged 70 plus? Do you have 15 minutes to participate in an online survey for BreastScreen Australia?NEW! BreastScreen survey for women aged 70 years and over

‘Nous Group’ is currently running an online survey on behalf of the Australian Government Department of Health to better understand the views and experiences of women aged 70 years and over who use BreastScreen services across Australia.

If you are aged between 70 and 74, you may have recently been invited by BreastScreen Tasmania via SMS to participate in this survey. If you have not received an invitation but are a woman aged 70 years or over, you are invited to share your views. Your input will assist in the future planning and delivery of the BreastScreen Australia Program.

Access the survey

The survey will take less than 15 minutes to complete.

Your participation is entirely voluntary, and no personal information has been provided to ‘Nous Group’ – you will need to volunteer your own information and contact details should you wish to participate.

The survey asks about:

  • your experience of BreastScreen services
  • what makes it easier, or harder to access and use breast screening services
  • any special needs or considerations for different groups of women (e.g. women living in remote areas, Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander women)
  • ideas for improvements at BreastScreen services.
