Canterbury DHB CEO UpdateIn this week's CEO Update…

Chief Executive David Meates reflects on last week’s Mihi for a new intake of nurses into the New Entry to Practice (NetP) programme, and thanks the graduating nurses for the contribution they’ve made over the past year. He also shares some words on the upcoming Christchurch earthquake anniversary, and how the pilot Step Up programme – which helps people with health conditions or disabilities to find and stay in work or to engage in education or training – has been going since it began in 2017.

This issue also talks about the donation of some hand-knitted teddy bears to Nelson Hospital following the Nelson fires organised by the Chaplaincy team, gives a tribute to Kath Low who recently passed away, having worked for WellFood for nine years and was the Avon Café Manager at Hillmorton Hospital, and much more.
