Waikato Hospital will be raising our national flag on ANZAC Day, 25 April, flown half-mast from dawn til dusk.
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.
Andrea Evans’ 10 year old son Olly was at a mountain bike camp at Tongariro National Park when he began to suffer a severe hayfever reaction due to an existing tree pollen allergy. He had a sore throat, sore eyes, and was wheezing and having trouble breathing. The camp organisers called home and Dad went down to the camp to collect Olly.
