Cancer care teams
Specialists at Cooma Health Service participate on the multidisciplinary cancer care teams (MDT) listed below. The teams meet regularly to coordinate care for people with these types of cancers:
- Blood cancer
- Bowel cancer
- Upper gastrointestinal cancer
- Brain and spinal cord cancer
- Breast cancer
- Head and neck cancer
- Urogenital cancer
Most treatments are available in both the public and private systems but the costs can be very different. Also, a specialist can work in the public system, private system or both.
It is important to ask about fees before any doctors' visits, tests or treatments. Ask what the fees will be and how much you will get back from Medicare or your private health fund. You will have to pay any remaining costs (the gap payment).
