St George Private
Part of Ramsay Health Care

At St George Private Hospital, we understand that you are more than your cancer diagnosis. We strive to ensure your whole physical and emotional health is cared for during and after treatment with a range of cancer wellness services.

Ramsay Health Plus

Treatment for cancer extends beyond the surgery you may have had, or the medicine you may receive. Holistic cancer care encompasses all aspects of your physical and emotional wellbeing.

A healthy diet, being strong and fit and having good mental health are all crucial for optimising your treatment outcomes and quality of life. Allied health professionals, such as dietitians, physiotherapists and psychologists, play an important role in helping you achieve these things.

But it can be stressful to travel to multiple places for appointments with allied health professionals during and after your cancer treatment. 

Ramsay Health Plus offers you access to a network of expert allied health professionals, all under the one roof at St George Private Hospital. 

Our team of dietitians, physiotherapists and exercise physiologists, psychologist, speech therapist and occupational therapist will work together to tailor a cancer rehabilitation program to meet your unique needs.

You don’t need to have received your cancer treatment at St George Private Hospital to access Ramsay Health Plus. And you may not even need a referral.

 
 

Cancer Care ACTIVATE

Sometimes, cancer treatment can affect your ability to perform everyday activities. Your physical abilities may be limited and your emotional wellbeing and quality of life my suffer as a consequence. 

The multidisciplinary CancerCare ACTIVATE program is specially designed for people who have experienced a decline in functioning and quality of life as a result of cancer treatment.

ACTIVATE combines education, exercise and support in a small group setting for two hours, twice a week for six weeks. The program aims to boost your ability to enjoy an active and fulfilling life. 

ACTIVATE is offered at Kareena Private Hospital – just 15 minutes south of St George in Caringbah.

Other wellbeing services

Your emotional wellbeing is just as important as your physical health during and after cancer treatment. At St George Private Hospital, we offer the look good, feel better program to help you manage any appearance-related side effects caused by your treatment. For more information speak to a cancer care navigator or a member of our specialist cancer team.
