Oncology and Haematology
The Oncology and Haematology Unit at Joondalup Health Campus (JHC) is a purpose-built, 12-chair / bedded inpatient day facility providing outstanding care to patients requiring oncology and haematology day treatment.
Located on the ground floor of the Specialist Medical Centre (West), the Oncology and Haematology Unit provides a range of inpatient day services for the treatment of cancer and other conditions to both public and private patients, including:
- iron infusions
- blood transfusion
- haematological treatments.
Allied health services such as dietetics or social work are also available to patients if required.

Throughout the course of treatment, JHC oncology patients are seen regularly by their own specialist oncologist. At these visits, the oncologist will monitor progress and assist in the management of side effects or other symptoms.
Comfort and care
The modern treatment facility provides a relaxed and comfortable environment for both patients and carers. Each of the 12 treatment bays has its own television and tea and coffee facilities are available for patients and visitors. Morning tea and a light lunch are served to patients receiving treatment.
The unit is staffed by a team of experienced and dedicated nurses who deliver care to patients with kindness and empathy. The JHC team is committed to looking after both the physical health and the emotional wellbeing and comfort of patients and recognises that in some cases, treatment for oncology and haematology patients can be a part of a long journey.
A carer/visitor is welcome to sit with the patient whilst they receive treatment, however due to clinical safety and infection control processes children are not permitted in the treatment area of the Oncology and Haematology Unit.
Patients may be referred to one of the specialists at the JHC Oncology and Haematology Unit via their GP or other specialist.
