Cancer centre

Our Cancer Centre cares for adult patients with cancer and types of cancers that affect blood, bone marrow and lymph nodes (haematological malignancies).

Cancer is not a single disease with a single type of treatment – read about the different types of cancer (Healthy WA) and cancer treatments (Healthy WA).

We care for patients who are being looked after by medical specialties including:
