Changes to the GP Cancer Phone line

GPCanShare specialist nursing and allied health teams are now well established across the Central and Eastern Sydney PHN region. These teams facilitate seamless coordination of care for patients and liaise between the patient’s cancer specialist team and their GP by:

  • Providing GPs with regular and timely updates on all aspects of their patients’ clinical and supportive care, via their preferred communication method
  • Offering specialist cancer expertise and service navigation by providing primary care professionals with a direct contact line to the patients’ treating team – test

Due to the success of the local GPCanShare teams, the region-wide GP Cancer Phone line will be discontinued from 31 December 2022.
