CEO Update – Monday 1 November 2021

In this edition of the CEO Update

The DHB’s plans to respond to a resurgence of COVID-19 were put to the test last week when the first community cases since 2020 appeared in Christchurch. The coordination of our response is managed by a tremendous ‘village’ of people, and we are truly grateful for all of their hard work. This week Peter is thrilled to share that Canterbury has reached 91 percent first vaccination doses and 74 percent second doses (up from 67 percent last week).

Also, in this edition, we observe Medication Safety Week, Pressure Injury Prevention Month and White Ribbon Day. You can also read about the heavenly name bestowed upon the Maternity suite in the Selwyn Health Hub, opening in early 2022.
