In this edition of the CEO Update…

CEO David Meates welcomes back the staff who, until now, have been working from home. He highlights some of the silver linings that have come from this pandemic to date, particularly the benefits to patients and staff who have been communicating online and over the phone for outpatient consultations. He also commends the work done by those in our Community Based Assessment Centres, as well as those who helped set them up.

This issue also pays tribute to engineer Tony Blacker, who worked for Canterbury DHB for 46 years; congratulates two new staff for their appointment at the Canterbury Air Retrieval Service; the arrival of a new molecular analyser at Canterbury Health Laboratories to test for a range of viruses, and much more.
