Cancer care teams
Specialists at Young 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
- Breast cancer
- Gynaecological 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).
Patients, their families and carers who do not speak English as a first language or who are Deaf have the right to free, confidential and professional interpreters when they use public health services.
To make an appointment, contact Riverina Medical and Dental Aboriginal Corporation or phone (02) 6923 5200 (Medical) or (02) 6923 5300 (Dental).
Information about what to expect before, during and after cancer treatment is available in this guide, written for Aboriginal people.
