Cancer screening

Shayal Devi
Thursday, July 10, 2014

WOMEN from across the Western Division will have a chance to access free breast cancer screening services by four Australian doctors later this month.

A statement from the Western Cancer Society said Dr Jai Raj, Dr Usha Nath Chand, Dr Jane Carroll and Dr Alistair Carroll would be present at the Patan Memorial Clinic in Nacovi, Nadi, from July 16 to 25.

"Services will include medical care for adults and children," the statement said.

"Women's health will include Pap smears and breast exams to screen for cancer. A lab fee of $22 is required for Pap smears if the specimen is sent to a private lab for quicker results."

Women attending the screening are required to bring a sulu and any medication that they are currently taking.

"There will also be free transport provided by Rosie Holidays from Nadi Temple to the clinic from 8.30am and 12.30pm from the temple, and 1pm and 4pm from the clinic to temple."
