Canterbury District Health Board Committees Heading for Cheviot

Two of Canterbury DHB’s advisory committees will be hitting the road and heading for Cheviot on Thursday 4 May.

The Community and Public Health Advisory Committee and the Disability Support Advisory Committee have teamed up for a joint meeting to be held in the Cheviot Fire Station Hall in McQueen Road.

The public are welcome to attend the meeting, which will start at 10.30am and is expected to run until about 3.30pm. At the conclusion of the meeting, there will be a light afternoon tea and an opportunity for locals to chat with Board and Advisory Committee members.

The meeting agenda will be available on the Canterbury DHB website from Monday 1 May www.cdhb.health.nz

Acting Board chair, Sir Mark Solomon, says board and committee members are keen to get out of the office and hold meetings in the communities they serve.

“It’s an opportunity for the locals to come along and hear about what’s happening and about some of the highlights and challenges we’re facing.

“The committee members are very much looking forward to this first meeting in Cheviot. We are mindful of the fact we are publicly-funded and this is a chance for the public to come along and better understand the work of the DHB and wider Canterbury Health System.

“I hope we see a good number of locals turn up,” Sir Mark Solomon says.

Thursday 4 May 2017, 10.30am
