About 60,000 people in NSW will be diagnosed with cancer this year. SWSLHD cares for 5,000 of those, so we are very experienced. Many people will be cured but the diagnosis is still very worrying, so here are some helpful tips that others have recommended, when they were in your situation:
After Hours Medical Care
If you require medical care after hours, please phone or go to your local Emergency Department, and advise them of your current treatment and diagnosis. If you need to contact your oncologist, telephone the hospital switchboard number.
If you need an interpreter for yourself or a family member, please tell your doctor, nurse or another member of the healthcare team. Sign language interpreters for the deaf/hard of hearing and spoken language interpreters for non-English speakers will be arranged at no cost.
