Alan Walker Cancer Care Centre Upgrades


Works continue on the expansion of the Alan Walker Cancer Care Centre in Darwin.

Upgrades include:

An additional 12 chemotherapy chairs;
An extension of the waiting area;
A treatment room;
New consulting rooms;
A new medication room;
An allied health office; and
Development of related support areas including storage and amenities.

At full operation, the new chairs will increase the centre’s capacity by more than 50% and accommodate an increase in chemotherapy patients as demand grows.

The expansion will also support improved integration of care by including space for wrap-around services to be provided at the site.

The facility is expected to be fully operational by March 2019.
