Acute Review Clinic

If you are feeling unwell or you have a symptom that needs attention, Baxter Wing 6 operates a specialist service for patients undergoing cancer treatment at Barwon Health. 

You will be seen in the Acute Review Clinic by an expert team who knows you and your treatment. This team can promptly manage your symptoms, potentially enabling you to return home on the same day, or escalate your care if it is required.

Using this service may save you:

  • presenting to the emergency department
  • wait time in the emergency department
  • risk of exposure to infections whilst waiting in the emergency department

The review clinic is a free service to all patients undergoing treatment at Barwon Health, however there still may be charges associated with some discharge medications prescribed by the clinic.

The Cancer Acute Review Clinic is located within the Haematology Oncology Inpatient Unit on Baxter Level 6. Hours of operation: Monday – Friday,  1pm to 9:30pm
