Understanding our community
The Southern Melbourne Integrated Cancer Service (SMICS) provides a network to improve the quality and continuity of patient care and ensures that appropriate links exist between health services to optimise patient pathways for persons affected by cancer. SMICS is pivotal in ensuring strong coordination and planning across the southern Melbourne region.
SMICS and our member health services, along with the Monash Partners Comprehensive Cancer Consortium are recognised as the Cancer and Blood Diseases Theme of the Monash Partners Academic Health Science Centre. These affiliated organisations form Monash Partners Comprehensive Cancer Consortium which is one of the largest comprehensive cancer service networks in Australia.
