Request for Breastscreen bus 'sooner rather than later'
Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch has written to the Minister for Health Mr Brad Hazzard requesting the BreastScreen NSW bus revisit Woy Woy "sooner rather than later".
The Gosford Electorate currently has no services for Breast Screening, "as part of the staggered approach to reopening the service".
"At the moment, the Breastscreen busis not due to revisit the Peninsula until mid next year," said Ms Tesch.
"We know that here on the Peninsula we have many vulnerable locals, some of whom are unable to leave the Peninsula as a result of their restricted drivers' licences.
"It is crucial that access to this vital service is made available sooner rather than later to ensure the health of our local women is not disadvantaged."
Ms Tesch said there was no set date for the BreastScreen NSW bus to return to Woy Woy.
"Our annual local visit was cut short by the delta outbreak."
