The Social Workers at the Northern Cancer Service are happy to help with accommodation bookings for treatment and help reduce out of pocket expenses where possible.
Patient accommodation units are available at the North West Regional Hospital to enable Cancer Centre patients who live more than 50km away to stay onsite to attend treatment.
Bookings can be made at NWRH reception Ph. (03) 6493 6000.
Spurr Wing and Spurr Wing House offer patient accommodation within one-minute walking distance of the Launceston General Hospital.
Patients and family can book through your local oncology social worker, Patient Travel Assistance Scheme or phone 6331 2457 for more information about bookings and pricing.
Situated in the CBD, Marillac House offers homely, affordable accommodation for patients and their carers travelling to Launceston for medical reasons.
The nearest car parks are the Argyle Street Car Park, opposite the hospital’s Argyle Street entrance and the Market Place Car Park, located opposite the Royal Hobart Hospital in Collins Street. Both provide day and overnight parking for a fee.
The RHH has an agreement with the Argyle Street Carpark to reduce the daily rate for patients and families if the car remains overnight. Please speak to your social worker to obtain further information on accessing this rate.
