DHB candidate receives backing of Nurses Organisation

Media release: Health First
6 August, 2013

Grant Brookes, 'Health First' candidate for the Capital and Coast District Health Board elections, is pleased to announce that his campaign has been endorsed by the New Zealand Nurses Organisation (NZNO).

Brookes says, "NZNO has a proud record of advocating for the health of New Zealanders for over 100 years. I am deeply honoured to receive their endorsement. With it comes a weight of responsibility, as I understand this is the first time the organisation has endorsed a candidate for the District Health Board."

"NZNO aims to be the lead voice enabling healthy populations in Aotearoa New Zealand. It aims to embrace Te Tiriti o Waitangi and be the lead voice for Māori health. It aims to oppose injustice and inequality wherever it impacts upon the health and wellbeing of New Zealanders."

"If elected, I pledge to further these aims", he says.
