Cancer services

Every cancer diagnosis is different and it can be a very stressful time. Our staff treat all patients with care, compassion and understanding.

The Bays provides a comprehensive cancer care service. Our care begins with screening and cancer diagnosis. We provide surgery, oncology treatment, follow up and ongoing support. Our aim is to provide ready access to the best cancer care available for our patients locally on the Mornington Peninsula.

The Bays provides specialised oncology nursing care, diagnostic imaging, pathology and access to cancer specialists. Our specialists provide surgery for cancer, medical oncology, chemotherapy and an infusion service. As a team, we provide a support throughout the journey and ongoing.

Our Haematology  care includes clinical treatment and management of blood conditions, including anaemia, Hodgkins’ disease, lymphoma, leukemia and myeloma, and thrombosis (such as haemophilia, DVT and pulmonary embolism).

Surgery of malignant (solid) tumours including prostate, breast, skin, lung and gastrointestinal tumours is performed at The Bays.

Supportive care and education is a priority to recently diagnosed cancer patients and those who require additional information throughout their illness.
