Welcome to Westmead Breast Cancer Institute
The Westmead Breast Cancer Institute (BCI) is recognised as one of Australia’s leading and dynamic organisations in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. Linking screening to treatment and expert clinical care, the focus of the BCI is to provide continuity for our patients and a coordinated approach to breast cancer care for all our patients. The BCI focuses on best practice, and utilises a research- and evidence-based approach across all of its programs.
Westmead Breast Cancer Institute have created a new program aimed at increasing breast screening rates for busy women, by bringing mammograms to the workplace.
In collaboration with local businesses and employers, the BCI mobile van will be visiting workplaces including Blacktown Council, the Arnott's factory at Huntingwood and Sydney Business Park at Marden Park. By making it more convenient for women to have a free, 15 minute screening mammogram, BCI hopes to increase participation rates for the women of Western Sydney.Read more...
