Working together to achieve better faster cancer care

Speech and Presentation made at the Midland Cancer Conference, Hamilton, 25 September 2015
by Dr Nigel Murray, Chief Executive, Waikato District Health Board

The launch of the second Midland Cancer Strategy Plan will set the direction and framework for a cohesive and coordinated approach.

The primary purpose of this plan is to lift our performance to:

  • improve health outcomes for the people within Midland diagnosed with cancer; and
  • reduce the appalling inequities we have; and
  • reduce the number and overall incidence of cancer.

Cancer is the leading cause of death in New Zealand – accounting for nearly a third of all deaths.
