John Duigan ship does its bit for women’s health


BASS Island Line’s new ship the John Duigan has done its bit for women’s health on King Island.

The John Duigan began operations last month moving cargo between northern Tasmania, Victoria and King Island last month.

One of its first cargoes was a mobile breast screen unit that was shipped to King Island.

The mobile screening unit provided a screening service for women on the Island from 18 May to 31 May.
