Cleft Units

In New Zealand there are 5 Cleft Units. They are tertiary providers of specialised cleft care. You will be assigned to the cleft team closest to where you live.

In New Zealand we are fortunate that we have such dedicated and skilled medical staff caring for our children.  Care of children born with cleft is managed in a very similar manner throughout the country.
