Call for Information & Support

Our 13 11 20 Cancer Information and Support Line can provide anyone affected by cancer with confidential, accurate information and support on any cancer-related concerns. Our cancer nurses can also inform you of services and programs.

  • You can call from anywhere in WA, for the cost of a local call (excluding mobiles).
  • If you are calling outside of business hours, you can leave a message and we will call you back the next business day. Please note, our support line is open between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.

When I phoned 13 11 20 , the cancer nurse I spoke to was well-informed, positive and reassuring. It was just what I needed to sort through my confusion and uncertainty at the time
