    A relief for New Zealanders with neuro-endocrine cancers - who've been unable to access regular treatment in Australia, due to Covid-19


    They can now be treated in Auckland, thanks to an interim arrangement.

    Cancer Control Agency chief executive, Diana Safarti, says a number of groups, including the Auckland DHB, the Ministry of Health, and the Cancer Control Agency, have collaborated to find a solution.

    Around two dozen unwell patients have been unable to access treatment in Victoria.

    The first patient is expected to begin treatment in Auckland before the end of the month.
