Cancer and COVID-19: for health professionals

We want to ensure support services remain available to people affected by cancer during COVID-19. Therefore, the following information has been developed specifically for health professionals in the oncology sector. 

Our cancer support nurses now work from home despite our office at 615 St Kilda Road Melbourne being closed.

Through this time, we continue to offer information, financial, practical and emotional support, as well as education and advocacy on behalf of Victorians affected by cancer and their health care teams. 

Our cancer nurses on 13 11 20 are fielding more calls than ever before, and we encourage the oncology sector - particularly in regional and rural areas - to refer people to us for general questions and concerns to help alleviate the strain on your own acute resources.

Thank you to all healthcare professionals for your dedication and commitment during COVID-19.
