Future objectives

  • Through your help and our work with Australia’s largest group of specialist medical practitioners we will be able to provide access to a significant number of cancer specialists.
  • These medical specialists also own two chemotherapy units, one at Westmead Private and the other at Norwest Private Hospital. Working in collaboration with this company and utilising their expertise will enable us to bring improved cancer treatment services to the Hawkesbury.
  • Local government are actively assisting us by establishing a chemotherapy unit in the Hawkesbury that will function with attending specialist practitioners and allied health specialists.
  • Onsite medical oncologists will head the team, and will be the key persons responsible for the establishment of this program. The capacity to monitor patients locally will avoid the need for unnecessary travel to facilities such as Westmead or Nepean.

Clinical Psychologist – User Pays

The importance of providing a local clinical psychologist of an excellent calibre will boost our service delivery in this pivotal specialist area for the members of our Hawkesbury community. Clinical psychologists are specialists in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of psychological and mental health conditions and are also actively involved in designing and  implementing a wide range of prevention and mental health awareness programs.
