We’re back! The Hamilton Niagara Haldimand Brant Regional Cancer Program is happy to share that Mobile Cancer Screening Coach services will resume the week of October 5, 2020. The Coach has been off the road since the middle of March in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
A Coach team member can help you determine what tests are right for you. We provide:
- Mammograms (ages 50 to 74 through the Ontario Breast Screening Program)
- Pap tests (ages 25 to 69 through the Ontario Cervical Screening Program)
- An order for a ‘do-at-home’ colon cancer test (men and women ages 50 to 74 through the ColonCancerCheck program)
- Smoking cessation counseling and referral (ages 18 to 74)
We’ve made some changes to keep you, your community and our staff safe:
|❶||You will need an appointment to visit the Coach. This helps to avoid line-ups and spaces visits across the day. Only one person will be allowed on the Coach at a time.|
|❷||We will ask if you have any symptoms of COVID-19 before entering the Coach. Our staff screen themselves every day too. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, we will help you make an appointment at a testing centre if needed.|
|❸||You will be asked to clean your hands and wear a mask before entry. Our staff will be also be wearing a mask. If you don’t have a mask, we will provide you with one.|
|❹||Enhanced cleaning processes are in place. Staff will clean and disinfect surfaces that have been touched between each client.|
