Plus Rehab to provide physio services from Napier Health Centre

Hawke’s Bay District Health Board (HBDHB) chief executive officer, Chris Clarke, said he was delighted to announce that Plus Rehab, a private physiotherapy practice would be moving in to the Napier Health Centre on 4 December.

“Plus Rehab have signed up for the next three years,” Mr Clarke said. “This public/private partnership means Napier people will, once again, have access to a wide range of physio services from the Napier Health Centre. Services for hospital outpatients will remain free of charge.

DHB Board chair, Kevin Atkinson, together with Napier Board members David Marshall and Diana Kirton, said they were thrilled at the outcome. “This is great news for Napier people. Plus Rehab, will continue to provide all the services previously available at the Napier Health Centre and their private practice.

Plus Rehab Napier Principals, Steven Bates and Tony Snell are delighted at the outcome.
Plus Rehab Napier has enjoyed a high profile in the Napier community for many years, first as The Napier Physiotherapy Centre and more recently as Plus Rehab Napier. The Practice is accredited and has endorsed provider status with ACC which means the public no longer have to pay for ACC treatments.

Plus Rehab clinics located in Napier, Hastings and Waipukurau, have a reputation for innovative and effective therapy regimes from their rehabilitation programs. Services are provided to a wide range of clients groups, self referred, referred from doctors, employees of local industries, and sports groups both local and national.

Senior staff have a range of post-graduate experience and qualifications and are experienced in working in public health outpatient departments.

“It is an exciting concept to be able to provide a service in partnership with Hawke’s Bay DHB.. The move from our current premises in Craven Terrace will provide the opportunity for Plus Rehab to expand all operations and services and ensure the people of Napier have access to an even wider range of physiotherapy services, available all in the one facility,” Tony Snell said.

HBDHB’s Napier physiotherapy service temporarily relocated to Hastings in July this year due to staff shortages. There is a national and international shortage of physiotherapists and HBDHB is still actively recruiting to fill physiotherapy vacancies.

Gordon Campbell: On What We Could Do For Hong Kong, If Only We Dared

There has been something repulsive about PM Jacinda Ardern’s assurances that our joint 5 Eyes criticism of China’s actions over Hong Kong – and China’s harsh reaction – are all well understood on both sides. According to Ardern, it has been a case of us saying the sort of things we’ve said before, them acknowledging our need to do so, and then them responding much as we would expect them to do. All neat and tidy. Frankly, if all of this is merely virtue signalling on our part, and huffy declarations of independence on their part, then what’s the point of this diplomatic dance..? More>>
