BreastScreen WA

BreastScreen WA aims to:

  • reduce morbidity and mortality attributable to breast cancer 
  • maximise the early detection of breast cancer in the target population 
  • ensure equitable access. 

The BreastScreen WA program provides free screening mammograms to women aged 40 years and over with no symptoms. We specifically target women aged 50 to 74 years, as the scientific evidence shows the benefit is greatest for women in this age group.

Since March 1989 more than 2 million screening mammograms have been performed at a BreastScreen WA service.

Wheelchair access is available at all BreastScreen WA services.

Appointments are available 7:30am-5:45pm on weekdays and 8:15-11:30am on Saturdays at most BreastScreen WA clinics.

Women can book online (external site) or phone 13 20 50 to make their free screening mammogram appointment.

The Program is part of the national BreastScreen Australia program and is governed by the National Accreditation Standards.  In Western Australia, the state wide program is under the jurisdiction of the North Metropolitan Health Service of the Health Department of Western Australia.
