How do we know which doctor is best and whether to go public or private?

Hi all,

My aunty has just been diagnosed with Endometrial Cancer 

How do we know which doctor is best and whether to go public or private?

We want to make sure she gets the best treatment possible 

I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences

Hi Matea,

 

Thank you for reaching out to this Online Community. I have sent you a welcome message by email, but thought I might post a link here that might be helpful for you and your Aunty with decisions around her treatment. 

 

This Cancer Council resource Making decisions about your care discusses access to health systems in Australia.

Deciding on Specialist Care helps with the process of choosing a specialist.

 

You might also find it helpful to call the Cancer Council Information and Support line on 131120 to discuss how best to support your Aunty with services that may be available in your area. A GP who your family feels comfortable with can help with choosing specialists for treatment. 

 

Best wishes to you and your Aunty.

Margaret
