BreastScreen Queensland is the only nationally accredited breast cancer screening provider in Queensland.
This accreditation is determined by the Commonwealth Government and requires BreastScreen Queensland to comply with rigorous national standards and guidelines that address all aspects of the program, including clinical practice, program management, quality controls, staff training and customer service.
The national standards are based on best practice and are consistent with international breast cancer screening standards. In short, they are designed to ensure you are receiving a high quality service.
Compliance and performance is measured by way of six monthly quality assurance reporting, on-going monitoring of BreastScreen Queensland's operations and through a comprehensive independent audit of services undertaken every two to three years.
A national report of the program's performance is released every year by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.
BreastScreen Queensland also has its own quality controls in place to monitor the technical quality of equipment and invites public feedback about its services.
