For Patients Starting Chemotherapy
Once you and your doctor have agreed there is a need for chemotherapy we will arrange for you to have your treatment at your nominated chemotherapy centre:
Grafton Oncology Unit:
Grafton oncology unit is located at Grafton Base Hospital:
174 Arthur Street,
Grafton NSW 2460
Telephone: (02) 6641 8493
Hours: Monday to Friday 8:00am to 4:30pm
Nurse Unit Manager: Sharyn Hurford
Your oncologist visits the Grafton Oncology Unit once a month. This clinic is dedicated to those patients actively undergiong chemotherapy at the Grafton Oncology Unit.
When your treatment has finished you will be asked to make further follow-up appointments in Lismore at a time and day suitable to you. These appointments are less frequent, usually once every 3 to 6 months.
Your Oncologist is able to provide a Telehealth consultation to you and your general practitioner if the burden of travel to Lismore is too great.
