Ley to introduce cancer screening register bill this week

Health Minister Sussan Ley will introduce a bill to establish the new National Cancer Screening Register (NCSR) for cervical and bowel cancer screening to Parliament this week.

While the announcement of Telstra Health as the winning contractor caused a furore in some media outlets in May, legislation allowing for the operation of the register and data migration from existing state-based cervical cancer programs lapsed due to the dissolution of Parliament for the July federal election.
