  • experienced caregivers and allied health support including social workers, dietitians, case managers, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and pharmacists
  • pain and symptom management

Care is delivered by specialist oncology, breast cancer and palliative care nurses. 
We provide day chemotherapy services in our recently refurbished Ivy Suite, offering a comfortable and tranquil environment for patients and their families and friends.

The Ivy Suite includes adjustable seating, abundant natural light, modern facilities, food and drink services, and reading materials to help you feel more at home.
Depending on the cancer, radiation oncology may be used in combination with chemotherapy, or on its own. 
We offer specialist radiation therapy services using the latest techniques. 
Our investment in health and medical research is central to how we deliver exceptional patient care and is supported by all St John of God Subiaco Hospital oncologists. 

Of our 50 active clinical trials, 45 are specific to oncology, with research investigating melanoma and breast, colorectal, pancreatic, gynaecological, lung, prostate and brain cancers.

Since 2006, almost 1,000 Western Australians affected by cancer have benefited from clinical trials led by St John of God Subiaco Hospital specialists.
