Oncology Inpatient Care

Peninsula Health provides 24/7 in-hospital care for oncology patients at all stages of their cancer journey.

Working in a multi-disciplinary fashion, our oncology team liaise with services both in the hospital and the community. They deliver inpatient systemic anti-cancer therapies, working together with the Chemotherapy Day Unit when appropriate and provide inpatient radiotherapy in partnership with Frankston Private Hospital.

The oncology consultant and registrar on-call review all the oncology patients and referrals. They are also available for new admissions or urgent referrals made by the Emergency Department, other specialists or GPs.
