Cancer treatment services are provided to patients in Taranaki, Whanganui, Hawke's Bay, Wairarapa and MidCentral areas by the Regional Cancer Treatment Service (RCTS). 

RCTS provides Oncology Services from Palmerston North Hospital (including Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology and Clinical Haematology).

Medical Oncology clinics are also located throughout the RCTS area, with medical oncology doctors visiting the clinics at least monthly. Services provided in these clinics vary and patients may still require travel to Palmerston North for treatment.
