The Leukaemia Foundation’s Support Services team are highly-trained health professionals with experience and qualifications in registered nursing, social work, welfare work, social science and/or counselling.
Our team members are based all over Australia and all have extensive work history in oncology and haematology – whether in an acute clinical or a community-based setting. Support Services Coordinators are available to help all patients, carers and loved ones of those diagnosed with a blood cancer, whether they are staying in one of our accommodation centres or living in their own homes in metropolitan, rural, or regional Australia. They can connect with you in a variety of ways, including over the phone, via email, in hospital, or at home.
The Support Services team is complemented by a team of experts in varying health fields. Some members of this team have been providing their vital skills for over 25 years. They include psychologists, motivational speakers, dietitians, exercise physiologists, change management consultants and social workers. Access to these experts ensures that our services meet the varied needs of each individual accessing our services, contributing to make our service unique and acclaimed within the health care sector. Appointments with each of these individuals can be made through one of our Support Services Coordinators. Contact the Support Services team by telephone on Freecall 1800 620 420.
