To celebrate the Games we took some time to interview some of our very own Waikato DHB staff who are participating in the Games, starting with Quality and Patient Safety’s team leader of clinical effectiveness Veronique Gibbons.
The sides squared off in this month’s New Zealand Medical Journal. Today, Waikato District Health Board chief executive Dr Nigel Murray and Otago Medical School dean Prof Peter Crampton put their respective cases on the matter.
Waikato District Health Board has made its SmartHealth online doctor service available to anyone to use in an emergency immediately, without having to register. It means you can see a doctor for free from wherever you are, if you can’t travel or are cut off due to the bad weather created by Cyclone Cook.
