Referrals to International Cancer Centres
TAKE HOME MESSAGE:
Cancer treatments vary widely from country to country.
Many hi-tech treatments, for example; Proton Beam Therapy, are not available in Australia & New Zealand.
THUS: a negative prognosis in AU or NZ may be seen as treatable cancer at our collegiate hospitals overseas.
The process is NOT simple. There are huge challenges in coordinating national/international medical teams on the patient’s behalf.
It requires diplomacy & a deep knowledge of multidisciplinary cancer medicine across borders.
DO NOT try this alone.
Along with your medical team, we help match you to centres of excellence with expertise in your particular cancer- within Australia and globally. Over many decades, the Grace Gawler Institute has established close collaborations with some of the world’s leading oncologists; Singapore, Japan, Germany, Taiwan, UK, EU & USA also means we can fast-track second opinions.

We can assist with logistics, travel information whilst guiding you through your treatments.
