Telstra to operate government cancer screening

TELSTRA has won a $220 million contract to run the Federal Government's cancer screening system for five years.

The contract was signed on May 4, a day after Treasurer Scott Morrison announced $170 million for the job, and just four days before the double dissolution election was called.

Telstra will operate a national cancer screening system incorporating the two existing systems for bowel and cervical cancer.

A Health Department spokeswoman said the company would work closely with the Department of Human Services on the contract, and Human Services did not tender for it.
