Bowel Care Oncology Social Worker

Bowel Cancer Australia is pleased to welcome Australia's first dedicated Bowel Care Oncology Social Worker to our Patient Services team, offering further cancer-focused support to improve the psychosocial wellbeing of people with living with and beyond bowel cancer.

This fantastic new service is made possible thanks to a grant from the Dry July Foundation, and all the much-appreciated Dry July fundraisers and donations received.

“Your psychological and emotional health can have a significant impact on your physical health and ability. Social work therefore looks to holistically address your overall health and wellbeing. I am here to provide another part of the scaffold of support around you, helping to uphold you through your bowel cancer experience.” ~ Victoria, Bowel Care Oncology Social Worker.

People living with or beyond bowel cancer and their loved ones can now access this new service anytime via email or by calling Bowel Cancer Australia's free Helpline on 1800 555 494.

What patients are saying:

“Since surgery I have experienced chronic bowel issues which have isolated me from my community and friends. As I live alone with no family support, I have been extremely grateful to Victoria for her professional support in what has been and continues to be an extremely challenging condition. I cannot speak highly enough of the support she has given me.”
