SAOC is the ONLY official organisation with Paediatric Oncology and Haematology Guidelines as well as a Formal Peer-to-Peer Review System performed by highly professional oncologists in that field.

Shareholding in SAOC has increased considerably making it by far the largest Oncology network in South Africa, and still growing. We are confident to say that we represent the best oncologists in the country with inclusion of all sub disciplines such as Medical and Radiation Oncology, Clinical Haematology as well as Paediatric Oncology. This provides us with the ability to ensure that the highest quality treatment review services are obtained as set out above.

SAOC’s contracts with administrators and medical schemes, now including the benefit options of the largest medical schemes in the country. This year it has also concluded contracts with some of the lower income schemes, a trend that is also developing

We are proud to say that we are associated with the best schemes and administrators in South Africa and we are looking forward to expanding new relationships with other funders in 2020.

SAOC believes that private healthcare in South Africa is only sustainable through active, efficient working relationships between care providers, healthcare funders, pharmaceutical companies as well as patients.

We strive to unite oncologists, funders as well as pharmaceutical companies with the common goal of appropriate and cost-effective quality care and sustainability of the specialty of oncology in South Africa.
