Please remember, limiting our interactions with others is our best defence against COVID-19. Please don’t visit the hospital if you don’t need to. The following level 2 visitor restrictions are in place for all Canterbury DHB health facilities:

  • Visitors will be screened and asked to provide contact details upon arrival
  • Visitors who are unwell or have suspicion of COVID-19 will not be able to enter
  • Aged residential care: no visitors, however, family visits for palliative care residents who do not have COVID-19 will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Specific and detailed visitor restrictions that apply to each hospital are available on our COVID-19 page.

Canterbury DHB In-Patient Experience Survey – April 2019 to September 2019

Canterbury District Health Board is committed to providing quality healthcare and positive patient experiences. Each fortnight we invite patients who spent at least one night in hospital to participate in a patient experience survey either by email or text message. The patient experience survey asks questions on four areas, with an overall score out of ten on the level of overall experience in communication, partnership, co-ordination and physical and emotional needs.

Further information can be found in the Quality and Patient Safety section of this website. Patient experience surveys for both in-patients and out-patients are also available on the Health Quality & Safety Commission website
