COVID-19 Information for Patients, Carers and the Community

Victoria’s cancer health professionals are working with the Victorian COVID19 Cancer Network to make sure that cancer patients are safe when attending medical appointments and continue to receive best quality cancer care during COVID19. Find out how our Victorian health services, including general practitioners, oncology, radiation oncology, clinical trials, breast care, palliative care and more, are responding to COVID19 in our video series below.

If you have any questions about your cancer care, please contact Cancer Council Victoria on 131 11 20 or visit the website.
