Wesley Choices programs to improve your quality of life

At The Wesley Hospital Choices Cancer Support Centre, our unique and free programs aim to improve your quality of life and help you navigate the sometimes very daunting cancer experience. We provide information and support to men and women affected by cancer and their families with respect for culture, values and spirituality, no matter where you receive treatment.

Located onsite at The Wesley Hospital, Choices is a welcoming space where we can answer your questions and provide you with the practical and emotional support you need during your cancer experience.

What we do

A large focus of our Wesley Choices services is on health and wellbeing throughout the cancer experience, regardless of your diagnosis and prognosis. However, it’s not only about support and exercise programs – we are able to help with decision making, managing treatment side-effects, and those broader life issues associated with a cancer diagnosis.

Choices’ year-round program of events is designed to support anyone affected by cancer including family and carers. Download the calendar here.
