Who are we?
The Waterloo Wellington Regional Cancer Program (WWRCP) is a network of partnerships made up of healthcare professionals and organizations that provide cancer care across Waterloo Region, Wellington County and the southern portion of Grey County. The WWRCP is responsible for cancer prevention, screening and care delivery under the leadership of Cancer Care Ontario Interim Regional Vice President, Cancer Services Sue Robertson.
What do we do?
Together the partners are responsible for implementing provincial standards and programs for cancer care and ensuring service providers meet the requirements and targets set by Cancer Care Ontario. The program responds to local issues, coordinates care across local and regional healthcare providers, and works to continually improve access to care, quality, and wait times.
