We are here to support people with cancer and their whānau in the Nelson Tasman region.
Cancer patients and their whānau deserve access to the best possible support available.
We focus on:
- enhancing patient and family/whānau support systems
- improving community wellbeing through health promotion
- providing information and resources for the local medical community and the general public
- networking to strengthen links with other related organisations
The Cancer Society Nelson Tasman Centre under the Orange Light setting
We will continue to provide clients with support and information throughout the Orange Traffic Light setting. Our office will be open to the public with pre-screening questions, social distancing and mask use in place.
Our Cancer Support Nurses are available for face-to-face appointments, on our Cancer Information Helpline 0800 CANCER (0800 226 237) and by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact Cyndy Smith, our Support Coordinator on (03) 5391137 | 027 2580075.
Groups and programmes are running under the Orange Traffic Light setting and masks will be used in instances where social distancing cannot be managed.
During Red and Orange, our Driving Service is available and clients and drivers must be masked. We will ask clients for their vaccination status. Our volunteer drivers are all fully vaccinated.
