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 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.
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 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 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.
Referral not required although an appointment is necessary
