Cancer Care and Palliative Care Services
Our Cancer Care services are focussed on promoting general cancer awareness, and the importance of regular screening and prevention practices, in line with broader government initiatives. We work closely with the NSW Cancer Institute and Cancer Australia, to ensure local Community voices are being heard, and are receiving the best quality of care.
We also host Pamper days – a screening program is principally designed for health care check-ups provided by our Aboriginal Health Workers and Nurses and a range of well-being activities provided by Beauticians and Hairdressers. We also provide women with up-to-date evidence-based health facts and information provided by other Program staff, as well as running regular community consultation and host specialist staff from external services, ie. Breast Screen Australia, to compliment what we can offer.
Our services also include information and referrals, screening appointments, transport to and from appointments, cancer investigation and follow up, specialist financial support (for eligible clients), Aboriginal Health Worker/Practitioners, clinical and General Practitioner services.
PREVENT THE SPREAD
Please self-isolate if you have any symptoms of COVID-19, including a sore throat, coughing or sneezing, or flu-like symptoms. Call our reception to make a telehealth appointment with one of our doctors.
Our Palliative care is an approach for clients living with a limiting or terminal illness. Palliative care helps clients stay comfortable while receiving care and treatment within their own home and assists with the prevention and relief of pain and symptoms, while addressing physical, social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing needs.
Our services include individualised supported care, transport to and from appointments, advocacy and referrals, appointment booking, home visits and emotional and social support.
