Welcome to Cancer Services
Our service gives adults living in the Barwon South West region access to world class cancer treatment. Based in Geelong, we have state-of-the-art facilities, equipment and highly skilled health professionals who provide personalised treatment and care. Chemotherapy, haematology and radiotherapy services are provided at the Andrew Love Cancer Centre and inpatient services are provided in Baxter Wing 6 at University Hospital Geelong. Some outreach clinics are available to people living in rural areas.
For Medicare card holders, there are no out-of-pocket expenses for cancer services provided by Barwon Health. In some instances, your specialist may refer you to have tests from an external provider requiring an out-of-pocket expense. If you have any concerns about this, please discuss them with your treating doctor.
