The Wig Service
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 a personalised wig fitting service for Calvary Mater Newcastle patients who lose their hair through treatment. Our friendly volunteers will help you choose a flattering wig, fit it correctly and provide advice on wig maintenance and care.
To access the Wig Service you need to be:
- a Calvary Mater Newcastle patient
- receiving treatment
- and have lost your hair as a consequence of your medical condition
The service is provided to both female and male patients in all age groups and from all walks of life. It is a free service that is reliant on community donations.
The Wig Service clinic operates on two Mondays per month from approximately 9:30am – 12:30pm. On arrival for your appointment you should take a seat in the Wig Service waiting area, adjacent to the wig cabinet in the Medical Centre. A volunteer will then welcome you once you are seated.
Referral not required although an appointment is necessary
