All patients coming for surgery or any procedure that requires a general anaesthetic will need to undergo a COVID-19 test before the surgery/procedure. You can have either a RAT or a PCR test.

We know it's a challenging time and that you may have questions about COVID-19 and your cancer treatment.

With Australia’s COVID-19 vaccination program underway, we are receiving questions from patients and carers about vaccination for people affected by cancer. The information and resources on this page should address some of your uncertainties.

Peter Mac is experiencing a high volume of calls so we're working with Cancer Council Australia’s Information and Support line to ensure we can best support our patients and families.

On this page you will find links to COVID-19 information in other languages.
