There are currently visitor restrictions at Starship Hospital and in the maternity and gynaecology wards and outpatient clinics at Auckland City Hospital and Greenlane Clinical Centre to help prevent the spread of breathing-related viruses to tamariki and pēpi within our hospitals.
To encourage breast screening among Māori wāhine, BreastScreen Auckland Central recently held a Wāhine Day.
On Saturday 26 June, 24 wāhine and their whānau were welcomed into the centre where everyone sat together sharing their korero over kai.
"The wāhine were supported through the breast screening process and seven wāhine had a smear," says Susie Kite, Health Promotion Retention and Recruitment Advisor. "But the best part of the day was whakawhanaungatanga, where we were able to establish relationships with our community."
BreastScreen Aotearoa is New Zealand’s free national breast screening programme for women aged between 45 and 69.
Visit the new BreastScreen Auckland Central clinic at 308 Great South Road, Greenlane.
