WCMICS is excited to share our Annual Report 2020-2021.
It has been yet another year of challenges and resilience with the COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacting the way we live, work and care for our community.
However despite these demands on our health system in responding to the pandemic, WCMICS continued its support of our partner health services, adapting and innovating, in our shared pursuit of improving patient experiences and outcomes by connecting cancer care and driving best practice.
Yet amid the chaos of the past year, we have many achievements to celebrate!
