Launch of CanRefer website

World Cancer Day will mark the launch of a new cancer referral website, Canrefer, to help general practitioners and cancer patients search for healthcare teams specialising in the treatment and care of specific cancers across New South Wales.

Launched by the NSW Minister for Health and Minister for Medical Research, Jillian Skinner, Canrefer is a comprehensive database of all cancer specialists operating within a multidisciplinary team across New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory. It also includes practical information on individual facilities - such as maps, opening hours, parking costs and if the service is offered by public or private providers.

The website has been designed specifically for busy GPs, and allows searching by tumour and location to cater for individual patient preferences. Canrefer includes links to other resources on patient support, transport and accommodation. Visit www.canrefer.org.au
