A group of Dunedin psychotherapists is concerned there is no
counselling service for cancer patients at Dunedin Hospital
following a staff resignation, but a limited service will be
available from mid-February.
A proposal seeking $160,000 for the first part of a project
to see where care could be improved for Dunedin Hospital
orthopaedic patients will be considered at the first meeting
of the new Southern District Health Board tomorrow.
Frustrated with what he sees as lack of progress on resolving
long-standing concerns about patient treatment times in
Dunedin Hospital's emergency department, clinical leader Dr
John Chambers has turned to poetry.
