The South Western Sydney Area Health Service (SWSAHS) serves a population of three quarters of a million people. This population experiences comparatively high levels of social disadvantage, is drawn from a diverse multicultural background, and is geographically dispersed through urban, semi-rural, and rural localities. The SWSAHS is committed to cancer prevention and to improving treatment outcomes and service satisfaction for patients with cancer.
