In an emergency, always call triple zero (000). It’s a free call from any phone, mobile or phone box.

For other urgent medical issues, go to an Emergency Department.

Our Emergency Departments are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week:

We provide a service to patients with a progressive illness, not exclusively cancer patients, to help maintain the best possible quality of life.

Registered Nurses and our multi-disciplinary team including social workers and cancer liaison staff, help patients monitor pain symptoms and offer support in collaboration with the patient’s General Practitioner and treating specialists.

We provide a specialist nursing consultancy service for symptom management to Residential Aged Care facilities. We also work closely with Queensland Community Nursing Services to ensure continuity of care, and Silver Chain for end of life care.

Inpatient care is provided at Lismore, Tweed and Murwillumbah hospitals and assistance from trained volunteers is available for in-home respite, equipment loan and transport.

Our staff can provide information and assistance with regard to prostheses, wigs, transport for treatment, and clinical and financial support.

Our Palliative Care Service is provided for eligible clients who have a life-limiting illness of six months or less. Referral from a GP or specialist doctor is required.

Bereavement support is available.
