Medical Oncology

How we can help you

We provide care to people with cancer who are living in the community or staying in our Hospital. Our team of medical specialists use the latest research. We work with cancer care coordinators, radiation oncology, palliative care and nursing to provide holistic care for our patients.
We provide:

  • Chemotherapy - medicines that destroy cancer cells.
  • Immunotherapy - a treatment that helps your immune system fight cancer.
  • Hormonal therapy for cancers that grow in response to your body’s hormones. This treatment uses synthetic hormones to block your natural hormones. This helps to reduce the size and slow down the spread of the cancer.
  • Targeted therapy - medicines that work on specific features of cancer cells to stop it growing and spreading.

We provide chemotherapy services to people living in the community through our Haematology Oncology Day Centre (HODC). Here we provide short stay treatments and patient education. Our senior nursing staff will work with our specialists to deliver your treatment.
Our medical specialists see new patients and review the progress of current patients in our outpatient clinics located in the Cancer Care Centre, St George Hospital. 
If you need higher dose chemotherapy or more supportive care, you may need to stay in our Hospital. We have a ward on level 7A of the Acute Services Building, St George Hospital.

We are a teaching hospital and student doctors or nurses may be involved in your care and supervised by senior staff during your visit. You have the right to say no. If you do so, this will not impact in any way on the services we will provide. We will discuss with you any research projects or clinical trials that are relevant to your condition and whether you would like to participate.
