We are here to help provide support to people with cancer and their whānau across Kāpiti, Wairarapa, Marlborough and Nelson-Tasman. We are the Wellington Division of the Cancer Society.
The Cancer Society at the Orange Light setting
During the orange traffic light setting, the Cancer Society Wellington must change how it operates to keep our clients and staff safe. We want you to know we are still here to provide you with support.
We will continue to support people on our Cancer Information Helpline 0800 CANCER (226 237) and at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Cancer Society office doors will be closed however face-to-face support with the nurses or counsellors will be available by appointment, for those with a vaccine pass. We look forward to hearing from you with any questions, or for any support needs you may have.
Margaret Stewart House will remain open for those who need to travel to Wellington for treatment. Patients can bring one support person. Unfortunately, we do not allow visitors to enter the building or children to stay at Margaret Stewart House during the Orange Light setting.
Our Driving Service will still be available and clients and drivers must be masked. We do not allow clients to bring support people during the orange light setting, and clients must sit in the back seat. We take clients regardless of their vaccination status.
