Abstract

This audit has confirmed that there is an acceptable level of care at Taranaki Base Hospital when compared with those in published work. Elective patients with malignancy have a delay of nearly 6 months between the onset of symptoms and surgery. Patients in Taranaki are more likely to present with an advanced stage of tumour compared with other unscreened populations.
