Dear SWTCRC members,

It is with a mixture of sadness and pride that we said farewell to the Sydney West TCRC yesterday on June 30, 2021. Our TCRC changed the world of oncology in the west of Sydney. Our MDTs have blossomed, matured, and continue to transform the way we care for our patients. The glistening new aspect of our MDTs is their role in recognising important clinical questions at the coal face, and presenting these to the research community to help solve. Watch for some exciting announcements in the next few months about how we will add further research firepower to our MDTs to enrich the environment in which we work, and improve outcomes.
