CARE & CONNECT

Welcome to Care & Connect, the newsletter of the Sydney WeCare Connect CPMst Cancer Network.

We launched this publication to help our patients and their family, staff and our broader community stay abreast of the network’s news.

The newsletter will also help keep you up to date with the latest developments in the world of cancer care and prevention.

We hope the newsletter will also give patients and the broader community an opportunity to have their say. We need to hear from patients, carers and other members of the community about what you want from our network.  We are committed to looking at how we can improve our services.

We welcome your comments on the newsletter and suggestions for stories via our “Feedback” link.
