Regional Community Cancer Services

The Barwon South Western Regional Integrated Cancer Service (BSWRICS) is committed to assisting cancer patients, their families and carers.

In recognising the need to share community information, the Community Cancer Services Directory has been produced. The aim of the directory is to provide regional information on services to meet the needs of those affected by cancer in the community. It gives the contact details of the services and supportive care available across the region. For more information please contact: Barwon South Western Regional Integrated Cancer Service (BSWRICS) on (03) 4215 0459.
