Gynaecologic Oncology

Gynaecologic Oncology is a tertiary referral centre and part of the Gynaecology services based at Christchurch Women's Hospital.

Women with all types and stages of gynaecologic cancer, including those with uncommon or complex presentations are referred for investigation and treatment.

We aim to provide an integrated service ensuring patients have access to high quality specialist care. We pride ourselves on delivering a high quality specialist service with a high regard for the privacy and dignity of each patient as an individual.

Specialist radiation, medical oncology and oncologic imaging and pathology staff, together with the surgeons work closely together to form a multidisciplinary gynaecologic cancer service.

Regular multidisciplinary tumour board meetings and clinics are conducted to assure the best cancer diagnosis, treatment and recovery pathways are available.
