Cancer Services / Oncology
We provide holistic support and education to cancer patients both as inpatients and outpatients of the Oncology, Haematology, Urology and Radiation Oncology Clinics.
The cancer services team also provides support for the patient’s psychological and social needs as well as offering links to other cancer and community services.
A cancer diagnosis during the adolescent and young adult years can be highly challenging for young people and their families. Being a young adult is not easy at the best of times – finances, work, study, sexuality, independence, peers … you name it, it’s all happening!
The Queensland Youth Cancer Services works in partnership with 15-25-year-olds and the cancer specialists in their hospital to ensure all aspects of their health and wellbeing are considered during treatment and beyond.

Oncology Day Unit
The Oncology Day Unit is a six bed/chair facility and provides chemotherapy and other procedures.
It is situated in a bright and open setting to enable patients to make important connections with each other as they receive their treatment.
Each bed/chair is equipped with a television and headset.
We encourage our patients to bring a support person to their appointments and treatments on site.
