Our Vision & Mission
Established in 2006, the Victorian Integrated Cancer Services promote the development of an organised, coordinated, multidisciplinary approach to the provision of cancer services.
Working together with health services and other cancer sector stakeholders, WCMICS seek to implement the priorities outlined in the Victorian Cancer Plan. We do so by working collaboratively to drive change at multiple levels across the health system, locally and state-wide.
We are funded by the Victorian Government and we work with health services providers and people affected by cancer across the western and central suburbs on Melbourne.
