22 May Loddon Mallee Cancer Services Plan
HealthConsult has been engaged by Bendigo Health Care Group to develop a Loddon Mallee Regional Cancer Services Plan on behalf of the Loddon Mallee Integrated Cancer Service (LMICS). Development of the plan will involve reviewing the current and projected demographic and cancer burden data and consulting with cancer patients and carers in the region to identify their cancer service needs over the next ten years. The plan will also profile the existing cancer service system utilised by residents of the Loddon Mallee Region (LMR) and the resources supporting this activity; provide a detailed gap analysis between identified and projected needs; identify opportunities for innovative solutions and service models and identify key barriers and enablers to resolving the prioritised gaps and realising potential opportunities. The project commenced in May 2016 and was completed in March 2017.
