Your View: Better cancer services

I WAS pleased to hear the Liberals announce their country cancer initiative, which will double the level of chemotherapy services in regional areas.

It would have been so convenient and much better for me and my family if I had had the option of being treated closer to home at the Wallaroo Oncology Unit.

This local unit is a valuable facility but it is underutilised, and the pledge from the Liberals to invest in more specialist staff and training for local GPs is welcome news.

So many locals are having to regularly travel to Adelaide (and stay there) for the treatment they need and for this not to be necessary would be a Godsend for all.
