Breast & Cervical Screening

Raukura Hauora O Tainui offers breast and cervical screening services to women of our priority groups from Maori, Pacific and Asian women who reside within Auckland Central to South Auckland.  The National Screening Unit aims to improve the health and reduce health inequalities for Wahine Maori.

The aim of the BreastScreen Aotearoa and the National Cervical Screening Programme is to reduce the incidences and mortality rates. 

The uniqueness of this programme is that it is providing a holistic approach by offering both programmes in a dual capacity to enhance women's wellbeing.

Health Promotion

Our Kaiwhakahaere will do a Breast and Cervical Screening Health Promotion presentation to individuals and groups at a venue of your choice.  i.e your workplace, home, marae, church, education facility, prisons or at one of our venues.

Smear Parties

Smear Parties are a great way to gather groups of 9+ wahine that want to have a cervical screening session in their own homes or a suitable venue.  If you haven't had a cervical screening for the last three years then why not organise a group of whanau and friends to spend a day being pampered after you have been checked by our qualified nurse. 

We will provide you with everything you need for a Smear Party where you can enjoy the comforts of being spoilt by:

  • acupuncture
  • facial massage
  • get your nails painted and manicured
  • foot massage
  • mirimiri
  • health checks
  • giveaways
  • healthy kai also provided
