The NWCC and Inala House (accommodation for cancer patients) enable patients who previously had to travel away from the region for radiotherapy treatment to have their treatment closer to home, where they can be better supported by their families and friends. The NWCC provides out-patient treatments and clinics for medical oncology, radiation oncology, and haematology patients.

Tamworth is a central hub for cancer patients in the New England and North West region and the community was excited to have radiotherapy added to the cancer services provided to the region. The NWCC has a day infusion unit with 12 chairs and 2 beds where chemotherapy and supportive treatment/therapies are delivered Monday to Friday. Clinics offered include medical oncology, radiation oncology, haematology, palliative care, genetics counselling, telehealth gynae-oncology, and young adult oncology clinics amongst others.
