Every member of our multidisciplinary team are here to help you. Here are some of the people you may meet and the role they have in your care.
Medical Oncologists are doctors who specialise in diagnosing and treating cancer with the use of chemotherapy drugs, immunotherapy and hormone therapies. Your medical oncologist will develop and continually review your treatment plan and in most cases, lead and manage your overall care.
Haematologists specialise in treating blood disorders and cancers affecting the blood e.g. leukaemia, or blood forming organs such as the bone marrow.
Oncology Nurses will support you throughout many areas of your treatment and overall wellbeing, including administering your chemotherapy, monitoring your symptoms and managing any side effects. Your nursing team can answer any questions you may have and provide additional sources of information regarding your treatment and diagnosis.
Administration team will coordinate your treatment at the centre, including appointment bookings, billing and connecting you with external support services. If you have any questions or are ever unsure who to talk to, our administration team can help.
Pharmacist staff are committed to supporting your care. Our pharmacists work with you and alongside your doctor and nursing team to make sure the treatment you receive is
optimal and safe. Our pharmacists are available on-site to answer questions, provide advice and information about your medications.
You may need additional support from other allied health professionals such as dietitians or physiotherapists while you are having treatment. Talk to your doctor or nurse about what services are available and how they can help you.
