We offer a range of cancer and oncology services to help you and your family. Wherever possible services are provided locally to maximise patient access and minimise travel from home.
Specialist cancer services include:
- Cancer screening
- Medical (doctor) consultations
- Treatment delivered by cancer nurses
- Supportive care services delivered by oncology social workers, cancer care coordinators and breast cancer nurses.
These services are supported by a range of other services, including palliative care, community nursing and allied health services, available to cancer patients via local community health centres.
Specialist services are provided at the new cancer centers in Bega and Moruya, at the Bourke Street Health Service in Goulburn, and in the refurbished unit in Cooma.
For some cancer types which are less common or more complex, travel to Canberra or Sydney may be required to ensure that the best care is received. Your local cancer unit can provide information on how to access services which may reduce the financial and logistical burdens associated with travel.
We work closely with ACT Health to ensure we provide the best possible care to our patients in the region.
Other services for cancer patients including palliative care, community nursing and allied health services are accessible via the Community Health central intake line on 1800 999 880 or by emailing SNSWLHD-CommunityIntake@health.nsw.gov.au
