The Cancer Support Program
No matter what stage you are at on your cancer journey, this health program can assist with your health needs and provide personalised support.
Our trusted provider offers cancer support services for members who:
- have a cancer diagnosis; and
- meet the clinical criteria for the program.
If you are eligible, the program will help manage your cancer symptoms and treatment side effects from home. You don’t need to be receiving treatment to access this program and it can also support with recovering from a cancer journey.

The program may include:
- oncology nurse – to develop your care plan, education, ongoing monitoring and links to local support services
- exercise physiologist – to get you moving and physically stronger, while improving your energy levels
- oncology-focused dietitian – to advise you on overcoming problems like decreased appetite and nausea
