Timely access to medical oncology and haematology chemotherapy services in Victoria
These guidelines are intended to be used by clinical and administrative staff within Victorian cancer services and
may also be useful for primary care providers who often initiate oncology referrals.
Adopting these guidelines, which are for the timely triage, review and treatment of cancer patients requiring systemic chemotherapy, aims to ensure that patients receive care within a timeframe that will maximise health
outcomes, and that care is consistent and equitable across all Victorian cancer services.
