Latest Updates

Thank you from Nepean Radiation Therapy

This week the hardware for the replacement Radiation Therapy music library arrived and has successfully been put in place a few moments ago.

Thank you to Dry July for funding this, and to the Dry July team here at Nepean Cancer Care Centre for doing such a great job at raising the money.

This will go a long way to making the patients’ treatments less stressful while being isolated in a noisy bunker.

Improvements at Nepean Cancer Care Centre

NCCC is using funds raised by Dry July in 2015 towards improving patient comfort in the clinic rooms, updating patient waiting areas, and improving video conference equipment.

The video conferencing equipment enables patients who are receiving palliative care treatment to stay in the comfort of their own home, rather than needing to travel to the hospital for care, and the equipment upgrade will make communication more seamless.

Making Patients More Comfortable at Nepean Cancer Care Centre

Nepean Cancer Care Centre in Penrith will use Dry July 2014 and 2015 funds towards a range of projects aimed at making patients a little more comfortable. These include:

  • Production of film clips to help with new patient orientation
  • Pressure care cushions
  • Over bed tables and bed wedges
  • New wheel chairs
  • Samsung tablets for waiting radiotherapy patients
  • Double bed air mattress so that family and carers can stay overnight when needed

LED Lightshows installed at Nepean CCC

On Monday 29 June, Nepean Cancer Care Centre celebrated the completion of their LED lightshow installation. 2 lighting boxes have been installed in the centre’s 2 radiotherapy bunkers to distract and amuse patients during their treatment.

These installations will make a huge difference to patients facing what can be an intimidating treatment experience in the bunkers.
