Lions Club of Broken Hill are taking bookings this week for skin cancer screening sessions being conducted over two days only, with this valuable community service being provided to residents of the region for free.
With visiting medical professionals rolling into Broken Hill in their specially designed caravan containing three examination surgeries and an administration office, the local Lions Club is urging the community to book in this week for this free service to the public.
Participants are given a written report by the examiners. Should any abnormalities be found, people will be given a referral for their general practitioners (GP) to determine any treatment that is needed. In the past, these GP referrals have been critical in treating possible cancers in a small number of people who’ve used the service.
Due to the high demand for this service during past visits to our city, appointments must be made in person, and not via phone, so with only 120 appointments available, people are urged to book today (Tuesday September 5 and Wednesday September 6) through one of the Lions members manning the booking stand.
To book an appointment for yourself, for friends or family members, go along to the Lions Club Car Raffle site at Westside Plaza at 5 Galena St today or tomorrow.
The Lions Club Skin Cancer Screening will only be held on Saturday September 16 and Sunday September 17 at 32 Sulphide St outside the Council Administration Building and opposite Trades Hall.
The screenings are conducted by the Lions Medical Foundation and funded by the Lions Clubs in Australia.
