Cancer Care Services

At Peterborough Regional Health Centre, the Cancer Care team provides an interprofessional approach to the assessment, treatment, follow up and support of cancer patients and their families. Our program works in partnership with the Durham Regional Cancer Program (based in Oshawa) in an effort to provide cancer services closer to home.
