Third major regional site signs new partnership agreement

  • VCCC Alliance
  • Grampians Health

The VCCC Alliance is delighted to announce Grampians Health as a Regional Program Partner for the remainder of the Strategic Program Plan 2021-24 (SPP).

The newly formed health service – which stretches from Ballarat to Horsham and beyond – joins Albury/Wodonga Health and Bendigo Health as the third regional site to sign on as a program partner in a move that spells a significant boost for the reach of the VCCC Alliance.

The Regional Partnerships project creates formal links between the VCCC Alliance and regional cancer centres with the aim of formalising collaboration and cooperation on joint activities, as well as providing access to programs of work supported by the SPP.

Collaborating to improve cancer outcomes

Patients with cancer living in regional and rural Victoria experience several disadvantages including a lower survival rate (65 per cent compared to 69 per cent in metro areas) and barriers to clinical trial access (time, cost and social disruption), compared to patients living in Melbourne.
