New Cancer Council Information Centre opens

Dr Marx, Dr Clark, Dr PenmanA group of local volunteers will front a new Cancer Council Information Centre launched at Sydney Adventist Hospital on 12th April.

 

Located in the San Clinic, trained volunteers at the Cancer Council Information Centre will assist patients and carers to access the latest information and resources about cancer diagnosis, treatment and support services.   

 

The official launch was attended by Dr Andrew Penman, CEO of Cancer Council NSW (pictured to the right alongside SAH CEO Dr Leon Clark (middle) and Medical Oncologist A/Prof Gavin Marx (left)), and numerous SAH staff, Cancer Council volunteers and cancer patients.

 

“Coming to terms with a cancer diagnosis can be distressing and confusing for patients,” Pauline Don, Community Network Coordinator from Cancer Council’s Northern Sydney office said. 

 

“Visitors to the information centre will find relevant cancer information so that they can have their questions answered, know what to expect, and find out what support is available.  The centre is also a place to relax between appointments or just take some time out to chat with one of our friendly volunteers.”  

 

Resources include booklets, leaflets, DVDs and internet access to the Cancer Council NSW and other leading cancer information websites.  The Centre also offers free telephone access to the Cancer Council Helpline. 

 

The Cancer Council Information Centre is located on Level 4 of the San Clinic Building and is open 10am-4pm Monday to Thursday and 10am-2pm on Fridays. Appointments are not necessary, resources are free, and everyone is welcome.

 

For information about the new Centre, or if you have any other cancer questions, call the Cancer Council Helpline on 13 11 20 or visit www.cancercouncil.com.au.
