Kia ora and welcome to the Central Districts Division website.
The Central Districts Division of the Cancer Society of New Zealand Inc is a charitable organisation covering
Manawatu, Wanganui, Hawke's Bay, Taranaki and Gisborne.
We are here to help no matter who you are, where you live, or the issues your facing. We help you with services that are free, confidential and accessible. These services are available for carers, family and friends as well.
Clinical trials are research studies, in which people volunteer to try new treatments or tests as a way to stop, find, treat or look after various medical problems. Only a small percentage of patients with cancer are involved in clinical trials in New Zealand at present, well below the rates of other countries.
We are asking patients and doctors from across New Zealand to give us their opinion, so we can develop a better understanding of how New Zealanders feel about clinical trials.

At Cancer Society, we know how a cancer diagnosis can affect every aspect of your life and we are here to help you through.
Cancer Society can help you get to your medical appointments, or provide accommodation if you live far away from hospital. Our specialist nurses can support you through your treatment and answer any questions you have – big or small.
And if you just want to talk and share your experience – we are here to listen.
No one should face cancer alone… with Cancer Society, you don’t have to!
