Welcome to Midland CANCER NETWORK
Cancer touches most people and their family/Whānau at some time in their lives, whether this is through diagnosis and treatment or caring for someone with cancer.
The Midland Cancer Network has a leadership, facilitation and co-ordination role in bringing together and working with stakeholders across the organizational and service boundaries to implement the Midland Cancer Strategy Plan 2015-2020.
The Midland Cancer Strategy plan provides a clear vision and road map for the way the region will work together to develop and deliver cancer services.
Working together to achieve better, faster cancer care aims to:
- Reduce cancer incidence through effective prevention, screening, and early detection initiatives
- Reduce the impact of cancer through equitable access to best practice care
- Reduce inequalities with respect to cancer
- Improve the experience and outcomes for people with cancer
The National Cancer Plan 2020-2029
The National Cancer Plan was released for consultation in September 2019. That consultation period has now closed and an interim board has been appointed.
