The Wig Service

Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 outbreak in the Hunter region, the Wig Service is temporarily on hold. We look forward to resuming services as soon as possible.

The Wig Service is a highly individualised service run by talented and dedicated volunteers, including a hairdresser, who has many years of experience in wig fitting.

Our team provide this personalised wig fitting service for Calvary Mater Newcastle patients who lose their hair through treatment. At your appointment, our friendly volunteers will help you choose a flattering wig from a wide selection, fit it correctly and style to suit. They will also provide advice on wig maintenance and care. All of our wigs are brand new synthetic wigs, therefore easy to care for. It is a free service, wig included.

To access the Wig Service you need to be:

  • a Calvary Mater Newcastle patient
  • receiving treatment
  • and have lost or losing your hair as a consequence of your medical condition

The Wig Service clinic operates on two Mondays per month from approximately 9:30am – 12:30pm. On arrival for your appointment you should report to the Medical Centre Reception Desk where you will be directed to the waiting area. A volunteer will then welcome you once you are seated. On the day of your appointment you are welcome to bring one support person with you.

The Wig Service is a free service to patients of Calvary Mater Newcastle. Monetary donations are always welcome.
