Day Oncology

Day Oncology at the Olivia Newton-John Wellness & Research Centre is a purpose built space where patients receive medical oncology treatments such as chemotherapy.

It is designed to be a peaceful and light-filled place where you can receive your treatment while making use of our entertainment facilities or looking out over the courtyard containing our tree of life.

 

What we do

Most chemotherapy treatments are given at the Day Oncology unit on Level 3 of the ONJ Centre. In addition to the latest equipment and highly-trained staff, the unit has been designed to meet your needs with comfortable chairs and beds, and entertainment devices such as iPads that can be loaned for personal use whilst on the unit. Volunteers are also on hand to provide you with a cup of tea, a snack or to have a chat.

At Day Oncology, our staff understand that a diagnosis of cancer and undergoing treatments such as chemotherapy can be challenging to you and your family. They are available to provide information and support to help you cope with your treatment and any potential side effects. Wellness therapists and allied health professionals such as dietitians or speech pathologists are also available in Day Oncology. You can have am medical review by a doctor if you are feeling unwell or are involved in a clinical trial. 

How to find us

You and your carer are invited to attend an orientation and education session before your first treatment to familiarise yourselves with the unit, staff, facilities and the treatment process.

We are on Level 3 of the ONJ Centre, close to the Main Reception.
