General practitioner electronic recommendation forms

Women do not need a referral to attend a BreastScreen Queensland service, however research demonstrates that a general practitioner's recommendation is highly influential in a woman's decision to attend for a screening mammogram.

Women aged 50-74 years are strongly encouraged to have a free breastscreen every two years. Women aged 40-49 and those over 75 are also eligible to have a free breastscreen.

The electronic referral forms for general practitioners are available for the following softwares:

BreastScreen Queensland has temporarily suspended breast screening

BreastScreen Queensland has temporarily suspended routine breast screening due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

We understand the concerns this decision may cause. This was a difficult but necessary decision to safeguard the health of our clients, staff, and community.

All women with cancelled appointments will be notified directly, as soon as possible. We will contact clients to reschedule appointments once we can re-open.

If you have recently had a breast screen you will receive your results as normal, through the post or your online account. BreastScreen Queensland also remains open for those women who have been asked to return for additional tests.

We encourage all women to remain aware of the normal look and feel of their breasts. If you notice any changes please contact your doctor immediately, do not wait until your next breast screen. Breast changes to look out for include:

This is a rapidly changing situation and we will keep you updated here on our website about when breast screening services will be available again.

We want to reassure the community that this decision was not due to a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 at any of our clinics. Temporarily suspending these services will help reduce the risk of COVID-19 spread in our community. It will also help to free up capacity in the health care system by making our clinicians available to support and respond to COVID-19.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call your local service on 13 20 50.

We are sorry for the impact this change will have on our clients and thank you for your patience and understanding. Our thoughts are with everyone impacted by this crisis. Please stay well and look after one another.
