In this edition of the CEO Update

Acting Chief Executive Andrew Brant thanks all those working in the managed isolation facilities for their ongoing professionalism and care as they continue to work hard to keep our community COVID-free and to ensure whānau can reunite safely when they return to New Zealand. With our Emergency Department experiencing extremely high demand, he asks that people save ED for emergencies and instead seek care from their general practice team or one of our three urgent care practices. He also provides an update on the recruitment of executive roles.

This issue also includes a farewell to outgoing Chief Medical Officer Sue Nightingale, encourages Kiwis to make this summer unstoppable and COVID-free, promotes research funding grants awarded to Canterbury and West Coast DHBs, looks at how the government and unions are working together for the health workforce, pays tribute to two long-serving staff members who are retiring, and much more.
