HIGH QUALITY MULTIDISCIPLINARY CARE
Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital is home to the Western Australian Cancer Centre, newly opened in January 2013. The WA Cancer Centre houses radiation oncology, medical oncology, haematology, palliative care, adolescent and young adult (AYA) and research services under the one roof to form a comprehensive cancer centre able to meet the many needs of our patients.
Here at the WA Cancer Centre, we are skilled professionals who are committed to providing high quality care to patients who access our service. We strive to give this care to patients in a non-judgmental and dignified manner.
Currently within the centre, we have 10 doctor consultation areas, 6 radiotherapy treatment machines, a CT and ultrasound facility, a specialised brachytherapy suite and 4 nursing treatment areas. All radiotherapy planning and treatment is performed by fully qualified staff. We adopt a multidisciplinary approach to patient care. Doctors, radiation therapists, nurses, clerical staff, engineers and physicists work together to achieve the best possible outcome for all patients.
We also work closely with a committed allied health team, and patients can readily access these services as required. With the help of the allied health teams we are able to offer an holistic service to each patient. By doing this and treating all patients as individuals we not only focus on the physical illness, but take into account a person’s spiritual, psychological and biological health.
