4th Wednesday of each month at Bairnsdale Hospital

The Wig Bank outreach to Bairnsdale will begin with a 3 month trial period visiting the Oncology Unit at Bairnsdale Regional Health Service, facilitating the borrowing of wigs to women from East Gippsland for whom travel to Sale is difficult. The visits will be 10:00am – 12:00 noon, starting from Wednesday 23 May.

It is preferable that women call or email Wig Bank Coordinator Lynette Teese on (03) 5143 1600 or 1800 805 448 to make an appointment. Lynette will discuss colour and style options, and bring a range of wigs that might suit. Wigs can be borrowed by women experiencing hair loss due to cancer treatment for short or long term loan. There is a small cost of $10 fee for wig care pack.

The Wig Bank is made possible by donations made to Gippsland Women’s Health and receives no other funding.  Read more here…
