Canterbury Charity Hospital
The Canterbury Charity Hospital was established by a trust in 2004 to provide free elective day surgery and medical outpatient clinics. Clients include those in our Canterbury community who can’t access these services because they don’t qualify for the public health waiting list, don’t have medical insurance and don’t have any other means of covering the cost of their treatment. The hospital also provides dentistry for WINZ clients only, and oral surgery.
