Oncology services are offered at Kyneton Health, providing care for patients with cancer and related illnesses.
The service includes an Oncology Clinic where newly referred patients will be seen by a Medical Oncologist and Specialist Nurse. Patients already receiving treatment can also be reviewed at the clinic.
The service also includes a range of treatment options including chemotherapy and other supportive therapies such as blood transfusions and immunotherapy.
Patients receive high quality care close to home in a friendly and compassionate setting.
To assist with chemotherapy preparation, you will be given a pathology request form to have blood taken 24-48 hours prior to your appointment, unless otherwise advised. Austin Pathology is located onsite at Kyneton Health.
