Following receipt of a number of proposed alternative sites for the BreastCheck mobile unit in Sligo, the BreastCheck management team examined each site in accordance with the programme’s site selection criteria.
BreastCheck has confirmed that a suitable site has been located at the Homecare Pharmacy on Pearse Road in Cornageeha.
This location meets all of BreastCheck’s criteria, including the need for confidentiality and discretion which, based upon feedback from our service users, is an important element for women who attend for breast screening. BreastCheck has expressed their thanks to all those who came forward with offers of support for an alternative location, in particular public representatives, local business leaders and members of the public.
The commencement of screening at the new site is expected to begin in early June. In the interim, BreastCheck will continue to provide screening to women in Tubbercurry, as they do not wish to delay women’s mammogram appointments.
All women have also been offered the option to wait until the new site is in operation, however most are keen to have their mammogram as soon as possible.
The site has ample parking and with a coffee shop next door in Cannings Service Station should make any waiting more convenient.
