Background on BreastScreen NSW
A lifesaving service for the early detection of breast cancer in women will be relocated to the heart of Wagga Wagga allowing better access for those at risk.

BreastScreen NSW will move from the Calvary Health Care Riverina campus into a shopfront in Berry Street in the city’s central business district in early 2019.
BreastScreen NSW Director Debbie Lattimore said it is hoped the highly visible presence of BreastScreen NSW downtown will motivate more women aged 50 - 74 to be tested.
“Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer in women in NSW and sadly, one in eight will develop the disease by the age of 85 years,” Ms Lattimore said.
“Breast screening saves lives, so it is vitally important that the new home for BreastScreen NSW is highly visible and easily accessible by foot or car for women.”
More than $4.5 million will be invested towards screening programs for breast cancer by Murrumbidgee Local Health District in the Greater Southern NSW region this financial year.
The new BreastScreen NSW site at 69-71 Berry Street will include:


  • Dedicated reception and waiting areas
  • Mammography and ultrasound rooms
  • Consultation, procedure and interview rooms
  • Call centre servicing Murrumbidgee Local Health District and Southern NSW Local Health Districts
  • Dedicated rear access disabled parking
  • Storage facilities.

A development application for the refurbishment of BreastScreen NSW's new Berry Street address was lodged with Wagga Wagga City Council in July 2018.
