CCN Head and Neck Cancer Steering Group

Central Cancer Network established the Head and Neck Steering Group in August 2008, to plan, develop and work with providers to implement best practice in the total management of head and neck cancers in accordance with the recommendations of the NZ Cancer Control Strategy Action Plan, national cancer standards and any other guidance relating to head and neck cancers.

This involves promoting a co-ordinated and consistent approach to the delivery of care, ensuring equity of access to high quality services across the CCN.
