Welcome to the Central Cancer Network's website
We are one of four Regional Cancer Networks established in New Zealand to work across organisational boundaries to promote a collaborative approach to service planning and delivery.
The purpose of the Central Cancer Network is to take a proactive leadership, facilitation and coordination approach to ensure all providers of cancer care in the network area work together with the community to manage the implementation of the New Zealand Cancer Control Strategy and associated Action Plan 2005-2010.
The aims are:
· To reduce the incidence and impact of cancer
· To reduce the inequalities with respect to cancer
· Improve the journey of cancer patients and their family / whānau through the complex pathway of care, ensuring equitable, high quality, patient centred, evidence based and multidisciplinary care.
