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 District Health Board (CDHB) has undertaken a benchmarking exercise in which its expenditure per capita in a range of service areas in 2009/10 and 2015/16 is compared with the equivalent national average expenditure for that financial year.
