Update On Olivia MacDonald

Eleven year old Olivia MacDonald, who was injured in a motorcycle accident in South Canterbury yesterday, remains in a critical condition in the Intensive Care Unit at Christchurch Hospital.  There has been some inaccurate reporting of her condition today and I would ask all media responsible to quickly correct it.  As usual, if you require information about patients at Christchurch Hospital or any CDHB hospitals, please give me a call. Olivia’s family do not wish to speak to the media at the moment.
