At The Wesley Hospital, we treat people with cancer with compassion and respect. Our Cancer Care Service is one of the largest and most comprehensive of its kind in Australia, led by skilled specialists supported by experienced oncology staff working collaboratively with Icon Cancer Centre Wesley (medical oncology) and GenesisCare (radiation oncology). The service includes the management of solid tumours and treatment of malignant and non-malignant haematology.
