PRIORITISING HEALTH: Wimmera Health Care Group’s breast screen team, from left, receptionist Leanne Mills, chief radiographer Kristy Paine and radiographers Helen Bryan and C M R Sadana, encourage women to book a free appointment.

Wimmera Health Care Group chief radiographer Kristy Paine has encouraged women aged between 50 and 74 to book a breast screen appointment.
Ms Paine said although she was pleased many Wimmera women were prioritising their health by having a two-yearly screen, she hoped to see more taking advantage of the free service.
BreastScreen Victoria’s 2013-2015 participation data showed 59 percent of Horsham women screened regularly, compared with 54 percent statewide.
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime and of those, 75 percent will be aged 50 and older.
Ms Payne said regular breast screens were the best way to find breast cancer early, before any symptoms were noticed and when treatment was likely to be most successful.
“Our entire team, from our receptionists to our radiographers, are dedicated to ensuring all women who visit the clinic feel at ease and are comfortable,” she said.
