Mō mātou | About us
Te Whatu Ora, Health New Zealand, leads the day-to-day running of our health system across New Zealand, with functions delivered at local, district, regional and national levels. It weaves the functions of the 20 former District Health Boards into its regional divisions and district offices, ensuring continuity of services in the health system.
As an organisation we deliver health services to the almost 600,000 people that live in the Canterbury region. We are committed to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and its principles by ensuring our partnership with Māori are at the forefront of all our conversations.
Canterbury Regional Cancer and Haematology Service (CRCHS) provides radiation services to a regional population of approximately 600,000. CRCHS currently employs 10 radiation oncologists, 10 medical oncologists, six haematologists and four palliative care physicians. We are a collaborative unit and work closely with a highly skilled team of radiation therapists, nurses and specialists from other medical disciplines.
CRCHS has accreditation for radiation oncology training with the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists. In addition to 8 accredited radiation oncology registrar training posts, we have trainees in medical oncology, haematology and palliative care.
The department has four linear accelerators, all with six-degree of freedom couches, a wide-bore CT-simulator, Monaco treatment planning system, Flexitron HDR Brachytherapy and ABC deep inspiratory breath hold units. We led the introduction of stereotactic lung radiation therapy to New Zealand departments, and expanded the stereotactic programme to include CNS metastases. Future developments include spine and oligo-metastases, and prostate stereotactic RT. Our HDR brachytherapy programme treats gynaecological and prostate malignancies and will include palliative procedures soon.
