Oncology and medical specialties

Hawke’s Bay District Health Board offers a number of services for patients who are having treatment for both cancer and blood cancer related conditions. 

Our cancer (oncology) services are subcontracted through Palmerston North's MidCentral District Health Board Cancer Centre. However we have one Medical Oncologist and one MOSS on site supported with a visiting Oncologist once a month, visiting Haematologist every two weeks and weekly visiting Radiation Oncologists.

Chemotherapy treatment is available in Hawke’s Bay in most cases. In certain circumstances some patients may require treatment in Palmerston North.

Radiation Oncology services are all provided through MidCentral and patients will need to travel to Palmerston North for treatment.
