National Women's Health provides world-class comprehensive treatment and care for women with all forms of gynaecological cancer including:

  • Cervical cancer
  • Vulval cancer
  • Ovarian cancer

As the regional service provider for surgical gynaecologic oncology, we also provide services to women who live in the Counties Manukau, Waitemata and Northland District Health Boards. An extended regional surgical service is offered to women from Gisborne, Waikato and the Bay of Plenty.

Our service works closely with the Regional Cancer and Blood Service at Auckland City Hospital (chemotherapy and radiation therapy services) to deliver the best possible outcomes for women and their whānau.

Women are assessed at outpatient clinics, where they are seen by specialist oncology staff. This includes a Gynaecology Oncology Clinical Nurse Specialist who will support them through their treatment journey.

Women are examined and asked questions about their illness, and management options will be discussed.

Treatment

Treatment may include:

  • Surgery
  • Radiotherapy
  • Chemotherapy
