The Canterbury Regional Cancer and Haematology Service at Christchurch Hospital is situated on the corner of Christchurch's beautiful Hagley Park.
Finding the Oncology Service
The entrance to the Oncology Department is through the Main Entrance of Christchurch Hospital where there is a drop off/pick up area but no car parking. There is a limited number of mobility parks at the main hospital entrance. There is also a limited number of public mobility parks around hospital, including outside the Boat Sheds in Cambridge Terrace.
You will need to allow extra time to get to your appointment.
Transport/parking options for Oncology patients can be found on our hospital parking page.
There are several bus routes that run directly past Christchurch Hospital. These can be found on the MetroInfo website and are also listed on the Christchurch Hospital page of this website.
Once you are at the hospital, the route to Oncology will be clearly marked with yellow lines on the floor and daffodil signs. There will also be volunteers to guide you and help with any questions.
We are working hard to make sure your visits to the hospital are as stress-free as possible. Please let us know of any concerns you have by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning (03) 364 0020.
What do I do if I live out of town?
We know that many of our patients live a long way from the hospital. The Cancer Society may be able to offer transport assistance from your home to the hospital, or accommodation for patients who need to stay in Christchurch for the duration of their treatment. Please discuss your needs when you come for your first appointment or contact the Cancer Society to find out how they can help 0800 CANCER (226 237).
They can also be contacted via the internet at Cancer Society.
The Metro Bus Timetable gives an up to date source of information on buses that serve the hospital.
