Rather than nurses losing their jobs at Wakari Hospital's
specialist rehabilitation service (Isis), their workforce
will be strengthened, New Zealand Nurses Organisation Dunedin
organiser Lorraine Lobb says.
The Ministry of Health has confirmed the Southern District
Health Board will remain the national provider of a
specialised radiation procedure, while a Dunedin Hospital
senior doctor says it is only a matter of time before the
service cannot cope with demand.
