Screening Support Services
Screening Support Services are available for eligible wāhine/whānau who are referred to, or who independently access services from, the support to screening provider. This support to screen can assist wāhine/whānau who experience barriers to accessing breast and cervical screening, assessment and treatment services. Some support to screening providers have mobile teams who make community visits and home visits, while others are based in clinics around the motu. The teams are a mixture of clinical and non-clinical staff, inclusive of kaiāwhina (support staff).
Screening Support Services (SSS) are available to provide extra support as follows:
For cervical screening:
- eligible wāhine/whānau are Māori and Pacific aged 25–69; and all wāhine/whānau aged between 30–69 who have never had a cervical screen, or have not had a cervical screen in the previous five years.
For breast screening:
- eligible wāhine/whānau are Māori and Pacific aged 45–69, and all wāhine/whānau aged between 45–69 who have never been screened, or have not had a screen in the previous five years.

Me aro koe ki te hā o Hineahuone.
Mai te timatanga, ko Papatūānuku, te whaea whenua, ko Hineahuone te ira tangata tuatahi, he wāhine. Tīhei Mauriora!
Pay heed to the dignity of wāhine Māori. From the beginning of time was Papatūānuku, the Earth Mother, then Hineahuone the first human created a woman.
I sneezed and therefore I live!
