Cancer and Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Cancer Council WA understands that West Australians undergoing cancer treatment, cancer survivors and their families and friends may have questions in relation to the recent outbreak of Coronavirus and the illness it causes, COVID-19. As we all adapt to current advice around COVID-19, Cancer Council WA would like to reassure you that the health and safety of all of our staff, volunteers, colleagues, patients and families is always our priority when providing any of our services and programs.

If you require any further information about our services or need support, please call 13 11 20 to speak with one of our Cancer Nurses who are available 9am - 5pm every weekday.

For specific advice around your individual risk please contact your treatment team for advice. We cannot advise on specific cases - your treating doctor/team is best placed to do this. You should continue to follow any specific advice or standard precautions recommended to you by your health care practitioners to minimise your risks during and after treatment.
