RAH Cancer Centre Management Team

Introduction

The RAHCC is South Australia’s single public hospital Comprehensive Cancer Centre, providing the full range of cancer treatments.

It was created in the early 1980’s with the role of providing World’s best cancer care for all South Australians (and those within our outreach borders) underpinned by excellence in Research and Teaching.

The RAHCC provides a statewide service for allogeneic bone marrow transplant, adult haemophilia and bleeding disorders as a part of the Haemophilia Treatment Network and public radiotherapy - either on site at Royal Adelaide Hospital or through the satellite service at Lyell McEwin Hospital

Staff from the RAHCC provide care not only to patients from Adelaide, but also to Port Pirie, Broken Hill, Darwin and Alice Springs through our Outreach Programs, supported by teleconferencing and regular visits.

We train undergraduate students in Medicine, and all related disciplines, as well as post-graduate doctors, nurses and allied health workers. We have an active research program at both the Basic and Clinical levels, and are constantly striving to increase and improve these programs.

The RAHCC has a particular interest in supportive care, and in ensuring the patient journey is of the highest quality.
