Primary health care education

We offer Primary health care education opportunities for continuing professional development in cancer care for general practitioners and specialists throughout the year.


We offer regular opportunities for suitably qualified clinicians to visit us, for limited periods, to observe work undertaken by a range of cancer experts. For further information call our switchboard on (03) 8559 5000 and ask to speak to the chair of the relevant service. 

Late effects care program 

The Late Effects service has a shared care program whereby survivors of complex cancer therapy at risk of long-term complications have their management undertaken jointly by the hospital team and their General Practitioner. 

We provide General Practitioners with information and support to manage the complex care needs of their patients; video conferencing is available to support ongoing management. 

Guidelines for the screening and surveillance of late effects of cancer treatments are available:
