New Zealand Breast Cancer Register consolidation currently underway!!!

The Waikato Breast Cancer Register (WBCR) together with the three other regional breast cancer registers (Auckland: which covers Waitemata, Auckland and Counties Manukau DHBs, Wellington: Wairarapa, Capital & Coast, Hutt Valley DHBs, and Christchurch: Canterbury District Health Board),  collect approximately 63% of all New Zealand breast cancer registrations (around 1600 per annum).

The New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation is leading and funding a project to consolidate the regional registers into a single, modern, web-based platform that will add significant value towards future-proofing these valuable datasets. The new platform will make it easier for data to be made available to clinicians for clinical decision-making and review of outcomes, standards of treatment, scientific research and audits. The ultimate vision of collecting this data is to drive improvements in our treatment and care of breast cancer in New Zealand.   


Dendrite Clinical Systems Ltd. (United Kingdom), was selected to develop the IT platform which will be securely stored at the Ministry of Health IT platform alongside similar clinical registries. Patient data will remain confidential and coded to ensure details are not identifiable. The partnership has been a collaboration between the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation, Ministry of Health and the National Health IT Board. 

For more information on the NZBCR including the Participant Information Sheet (Patient Brochure) please contact Rachel Shirley Tel: 07-839 8726 ext 97503; email: Rachel.Shirley@wdhb.health.nz.” or contact the NZBCF at 0800 BCNurse
