Collaboration is paramount for the effective and seamless delivery of burn care services. The Regional Burn Units and the National Burn Centre (NBC) form the National Burn Service (NBS).

This approach ensures the equitable provision of high-quality, clinically effective services for all New Zealanders regardless of geographical location. This is achieved through communication between the four units, co-ordinated clinical research, annual audits, staff education and rotations, and the use of nationally consistent guidelines.

The Regional Burn Units in New Zealand are located at:

Middlemore Hospital, Auckland
(co-located with the National Burn Centre)

Waikato Hospital, Hamilton

Hutt Hospital, Lower Hutt, Wellington

Christchurch Hospital, Christchurch
