The Nepean Cancer Care Centre is one of four major centres of the Sydney West Cancer Network which aims to provide multidisciplinary services and care to the community it serves.
Nepean Cancer Centre provides a comprehensive cancer service for both inpatients and outpatients offering medical oncology, radiation oncology, haematology, and palliative care services at Nepean Hospital. This service supports the Penrith, Hawkesbury, Blue Mountains and Lithgow Local Government Areas.
The service takes a collaborative approach to patient centred care including a strong affiliation with palliative care consultants along with community resources available in the community. Our multidisciplinary approach to cancer treatment and healing encompasses physical, emotional and social care. The centre offers a team of psycho-oncology and allied health staff to give our patients the extra support they may need.

Patients require a medical referral from their general practitioner or specialist to be seen by the appropriate specialist at the centre.
A letter may be sent to the patient if enough details are available otherwise when the appointment is made a reminder to bring the letter of referral, investigations attended so far, Medicare card and Centrelink information, along with a medication list (including allergies) and other medical information. Bringing a support person with them to the consultations is recommended.
Reception is contacted by either the referring doctor or the patient. The referral is triaged and an appointment is made for the patient in the appropriate clinic.
