Fresh new look at relocated Rose Clinic

The Rose Clinic BreastScreen has a new home and a fresh new look at David Jones in Melbourne following its relocation to the store’s second floor.

St Vincent’s BreastScreen, which oversees the Rose Clinic, opened the new clinic doors on Monday 31 January to welcome clients for their breast screens.

“The new clinic feel feels fresh and open, and we’ve aimed to create a calming and reassuring space for clients,” said Anne Barton, Program Manager at St Vincent’s BreastScreen. “The layout is bigger, with some special features including brass lettering on the door and a beautiful heritage lift that is no longer in use, located in the waiting room.

“We are delighted to be open to clients and will be putting finishing touches into the clinic in the coming months including new artwork and some new furniture,” Anne added.

The move comes as part of a large refurbishment of David Jones, which has seen major changes to the layout of the store and the location of different services.

The works started mid-last year, and thanks to a collaborative effort between David Jones and St Vincent’s BreastScreen supported by the broader team at BreastScreen Victoria, the new Rose Clinic has been designed with clients in mind.

BreastScreen Victoria also engaged consumers during the process to make sure we could hear valuable feedback about the new clinic plans from a client’s perspective.

“We heard from consumers and worked closely with David Jones to review the building plan, layout and interior design of the new clinic to make sure it is a nice environment for clients,” Anne said. “It is welcoming and has great facilities including a bathroom, changing room and tearoom for staff.

“We are planning to offer appointments on a few Saturdays and Sundays in the coming months to help meet demand for appointments at the Rose Clinic.”
