NET Resources

Patient Information Booklet

This booklet has been developed to provide information about neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) for patients and their families. 

If there is any information in the guide that you do not understand please discuss it with a member of your medical team. Further or more detailed information about your type of neuroendocrine cancer may also be available so please do not hesitate to ask for this as well.

We hope this guide will be a helpful and informative resource throughout the coming weeks, months and years.

If you would like to receive a hard copy to your home or work address by post, please send us an email with your NZ mailing address; support@neuroendocrinecancer.org.nz

PRRT in New Zealand: A Guide for Patients

In September 2020 PRRT launched in New Zealand for the first time, thanks to years of Unicorn Foundation NZ advocacy. 

To help patients understand what this treatment involves, Unicorn Foundation NZ has worked with Auckland District Health Board to produce a patient guide.
