Oncology

Wingham Satellite Oncology Program

Operating as a satellite site for the London Regional Cancer Program (LRCP), the Wingham site provides systemic therapy (chemotherapy) for patients living in Huron, Perth, and Bruce Counties.  This allows some patients to receive their cancer treatment closer to home.  Patients are initially assessed at the LRCP and then referred back to the Wingham site.
