Cancer Network Group Service


Taranaki Base Hospital

8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.


We provide medical oncology and chemotherapy clinics weekly Monday to Thursday.

Throughout the month we also have many visiting specialists who conduct clinics in the department. They are generally from Palmerston North and include haematology, medical oncology and radiotherapy oncology.

Outpatient oncology clinics are also held in Hāwera Hospital monthly.

Due to COVID-19 some clinics are being held either via phone or video link - you will be advised if this applies to you  prior to your appointment.

We also provide a Cancer Coordination service five days per week, which includes a multi professional team of experts to assist patients through their cancer journey.
