Paediatric cancer information for health professionals

Our Children’s Clinic is the provider of radiotherapy for children under 16 years old in Victoria, Southern New South Wales and Tasmania. We also treat 16 to 18-year-olds and some young adults with paediatric-type malignancies

There are two radiation oncologists attached to the Paediatric cancer service: Dr Greg Wheeler and Dr Mary Dwyer. Both are active members of the RANZCR (Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists) Paediatric Special Interest Group, Children's Oncology Group and the Paediatric Radiation Oncology Society. 

Like all our tumour streams, the Paediatric Service is a collaboration with clinical partners, providing coordinated and comprehensive cancer care. Ours is the largest paediatric radiation oncology clinic in Australia, treating about 100 children a year. We liaise with the Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Service , the Royal Children's Hospital and Monash Children's Hospital. We have a strong music therapy program, a radiotherapist-driven video-making program and are supported by philanthropic groups such as Koala Kids and the RCD Foundation. 


Clinics are on Wednesday mornings; however, we can see urgent cases at other times.
