The new service layout

28 Feb 2020

Medical tests are currently carried out at 3 different locations across the North Shore and central city. The new layout allows all those tests to be carried out in one dedicated place, allowing quicker diagnosis to be made.

Our vision is to provide access to world class care in one specialised facility, reducing wait times, reducing anxiety and improving outcomes.

A new model of care will be introduced to the expanded service based on the world-leading breast cancer service in Nottingham UK.

The new layout has space dedicated to consultation rooms, radiation oncology, medical oncology, nurse specialists, plastics and reconstruction and pathology allowing a multi-disciplinary approach to diagnosis and treatment.

The communal areas of the new facility, the waiting areas and receptions will also enhance the patient and whānau experience.
