Getting the Message Out About Health & Social Services In Turangi

Does your health or social services organisation or group provide a community service in the Turangi district?

If so, Lakes DHB is organising a hui for health and social service providers to be held in Turangi on Friday 29 November at the Senior Citizens Hall (10am – 2pm), and it’s hoped that all the service providers will come along, to talk about what they offer.

All health and social service organisations will also be invited to advertise in a directory that Lakes District Health Board is compiling.

Lakes DHB Chief Executive Ron Dunham says a similar day was held in Mangkino earlier in the year which was very successful.  The hui and Mangakino directory were the result of a visit to Mangakino in late 2012 which highlighted the need for improved promotion of what services are available in rural areas.

Ron Dunham says there is a significant number of services going into Turangi from a range of health and social services groups, but it seems many of the groups are not fully aware of what other services are being provided. 

He says along with knowing what is available and who is providing what services, it’s important to know how these services can be accessed, and the hui will help cover this.

All the information will go into a directory of health and social services for Turangi, that will be finalised after the hui.

Summary:
•    Who: All groups, organisations or individuals providing health and social services in Turangi
•    Why:  Need for improved promotion of health and social services available in Turangi
•    What:  Stakeholders hui and directory of health and social services being compiled by Lakes DHB
•    How Where When: Stakeholders hui for providers on Friday 29 November 2013 at Senior Citizens Hall, between 10am and 2pm.
•    Got questions?
