Official information request details

We would like to know how widely these are used in New Zealand’s public health system. We therefore request the following information:

  1. the number of pagers used and owned by the DHB, and what these are used for (including how regularly they are used); and
  2. any advice, analysis or planning documents in the last 12 months about phasing out pagers by upgrading to more modern communications systems; and
  3. any advice, or analysis in the last 12 months about the reliability of the DHB’s paging systems.
