DHB to update South Westland community

The West Coast District Health Board will present an update to the South Westland community at a meeting in Franz Josef next Wednesday night.

DHB General Manager Grey / Westland Mark Newsome and colleagues will provide a general update on facilities, quality measures, health services in South Westland and answer any queries.

“We promised the South Westland community we would be back to give updates every now and then and it just felt timely to do so,” Mark says.

The community meeting will be held in the Fern Room (Haast bar) at the Mueller Scenic Hotel, starting at 7pm, on Wednesday 30 September. Refreshments will be available and doors will be open from 6.30pm.
