HEALTH Minister Lawrence Springborg has rubbished claims the Queensland government will scrap a program used to detect breast cancers in women.

The Sunday Mail reports the Breastscreen Queensland program will be dismantled as part of the government's cost-cutting measures.

But in a statement on Sunday, Mr Springborg said there will be no change to Breastscreen Queensland's operations or reduced access to services.

He also released a Cancer Council Queensland (CCQ) statement, which he said the newspaper had not run in the article.
