Embedded within the suburbs at the heart of Sydney, Westmead Hospital celebrates 40 years of serving the local community.

This tour will see multi-disciplinary Westmead professionals guide visitors through the Crown Princess Mary Cancer Centre, exploring the development of cancer treatment at the hospital –  from the early years through to the centre’s current status as an internationally recognised Centre of Excellence. A glimpse will also be provided into the ground-breaking medical innovations and community connections shaping the future of treatments provided at the Centre.

Jointly presented by Parramatta Heritage Centre and Westmead Hospital this tour and discussion will explore the intersections between medicine, research, history and community happening within one of the most diverse and rapidly transforming regions of Sydney.
