St George's Cancer Institute is a charitable trust that has been established to raise funds to provide cancer services at St George's Cancer Care Centre. The Institute's priority is to ensure New Zealanders have access to the latest technology in cancer treatment in addition to generating funds to support patients on treatment.
The St George’s Cancer Institute is a charitable trust set up in conjunction with the St George’s Hospital and the St George’s Cancer Care Centre. It raises funds to support the cancer services at the Centre. This includes raising funds for the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment and technology to benefit the patients at the Centre. The equipment is then leased to St George’s Cancer Care Centre at commercial rates, and all income from this goes towards patient services and support grants.
