Women who have any concerns regarding their appointment can contact BreastCheck on Freephone 1800 45 45 55.“DACC raised their concerns regarding the removal of the BreastCheck Unit from Inishowen with The Dept of Health & BreastCheck and have been told the unit will not be returning to Inishowen. Distance should not be a consideration when you get your invite to attend please! You will only have to do this once every two years.“At our recent meeting in the Dept of Health Majella Byrne National Screening Service told us that while accepting that screening in Buncrana would generally be more convenient for the Inishowen clients, Ms Byrne spoke of the logistical challenges of the overall organisation of screening programmes and the frequent changes in schedules to make the best use of facilities with the aim of maximising up-take. “The current plan will facilitate the screening of women living in Inishowen in a timely fashion that ensures that the benefit of their previous screening is not negated. DACC have always had a positive working relationship with BreastCheck and that will continue. DACC had worked very hard over the years and are proud of the work that we did in bringing BreastCheck to the county” said Betty Holmes DACC.For DACC it is very important to make sure that eligible women in the age group make sure they attend the unit for their free mammogram. Don’t sit back & not attend when invited no matter where you live.DACC also ask that family members make sure they ask the women in their lives if they have had their free mammogram.
