The Hamilton Niagara Haldimand Brant Regional Mobile Cancer Screening Coach offers free, monthly OBSP screening services at Bridges Community Health Centre locations in Fort Erie and Port Colborne. 

NEW STATE-OF-THE-ART SERVICE IN FORT ERIE AND PORT COLBORNE

The Coach will bring state-of-the-art breast, cervical and colon cancer screening to Fort Erie and Port Colborne for a full day each month, beginning on November 7, 2018 in Port Colborne and November 13, 2018, in Fort Erie. Going forward, the Coach will visit Port Colborne the first Wednesday of each month and Fort Erie the second Tuesday of each month.

Port Colborne and Fort Erie residents are encouraged to see their regular healthcare provider to arrange for cancer screening. For those facing barriers, the Coach offers breast, cervical and colon cancer screening through the Ontario Breast Screening Program, Ontario Cervical Screening Program and ColonCancerCheck program.  Coach services also include smoking cessation referral. Barriers could include not having a family doctor or nurse practitioner, or facing transportation, cultural, or other personal barriers to participating in screening.

Residents can book an appointment by calling 905-975-4467 or 1-855-338-3131, or drop-ins can be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Women aged 50 and up can call directly to make an appointment, with follow-up appointments made as necessary by OBSP staff.  The Coach’s monthly schedule is available here.

ABOUT THE OBSP

The Ontario Breast Screening Program is a province-wide, organized breast screening program that provides high-quality breast cancer screening to two groups of women:

  • women aged 50 to 74 who are at average risk for breast cancer with mammography every two years.
  • women aged 30 to 69 years who are identified as being at high risk for breast cancer with annual mammography and breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) screening.
  • You don’t need a referral from your family doctor. You can call up your local OBSP site and book your own appointment.
