CEO Update – Monday 11 October 2021

In this edition of the CEO Update

16 October is ‘Super Saturday’ across Aotearoa with the goal of vaccinating 100,000 Kiwis. Creative initiatives such as free kai, drive-through jabs with no appointment and workplace vaccinations have proven successful in Canterbury this week, and we hope Super Saturday (and Sunday) will draw even more people out to be vaccinated.

Also, in this edition, we prepare for the implementation of the End of Life Choice Act in November. We welcome a new app to help identify and monitor underweight babies in utero and share a feel-good story about people coming together to help a West Coaster manage his dialysis a little closer to home.
