Patients and Visitors
Facing a cancer diagnosis can be quite a challenge physically, mentally and emotionally.
As a leading diagnosis and treatment facility, the experienced Canberra Region Cancer Centre staff are passionate about delivering exceptional care to people living with cancer.
As an organisation, we are committed to making things easier for patients as well as their families and carers at every stage of their journey.
Many of the patients accessing Haematology and Immunology services are not cancer patients, however, the process for being referred and receiving an appointment applies across all CRCC services.
Find a doctor and get a referral
If you intend to undertake your cancer treatment with us, your GP or specialist will first need to refer you to the appropriate service within the Centre.
The referral process is easy:
- Your GP / specialist can select a doctor from our list of specialists.
- Your GP / specialist will then complete a referral letter.
Your GP will fax your referral letter directly to the appropriate department at the Canberra Region Cancer Centre.
Make an appointment
Once we've received your referral, one of our Patient Liaison or administration staff will be in touch with you directly to book in your first appointment.
When you arrive, our friendly reception staff and way-finding volunteers will help you navigate around the Centre.
Canberra Region Cancer Center team
At the Canberra Region Cancer Centre (CRCC) we have brought together a full range of screening, assessment, diagnostic, treatment, psychosocial and palliative services in an outpatient setting.
In this way we can offer a multidisciplinary service that focuses on delivering the right treatment and support to patients as early as possible and throughout their cancer journey.
There are many different people patients will meet and work with at CRCC. Everyone plays an active and collaborative role in developing and implementing a treatment plan tailored to each individual.
Patients and carers wanting to familiarise themselves with where they need to go can attend a familiarisation tour conducted by our volunteers.
The tour is offered twice-weekly.
Please contact the Centre on 6174 8429 for further information.
Located on Level 2, the Patient Lounge is an area for patients and their carers to relax, or just take some time out.
Tea and coffee making facilities are available together with a range of puzzles, magazines and a TV.
All ACT Health facilities are completely smoke free. All patients, visitors and staff are required to remain smoke free when visiting any ACT Health facility. Security officers will enforce the smoke free environment. Support is available to help smokers to stay smoke free during their visit to ACT Health facilities. For more information on quitting speak to your GP or Pharmacist.
