Please remember, limiting our interactions with others is our best defence against COVID-19. Please don’t visit the hospital if you don’t need to. The following level 2 visitor restrictions are in place for all Canterbury DHB health facilities:

  • Visitors will be screened and asked to provide contact details upon arrival
  • Visitors who are unwell or have suspicion of COVID-19 will not be able to enter
  • Aged residential care: no visitors, however, family visits for palliative care residents who do not have COVID-19 will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Specific and detailed visitor restrictions that apply to each hospital are available on our COVID-19 page.

CEO David Meates talks about the Hillmorton campus masterplan, which represents the first step in its full remodelling  – a process which will, over the coming years, transform our mental health services – and sets out the potential size and positioning of new purpose-built facilities on the site.

This issue also reflects on a welcoming event for our eight new Project SEARCH interns, covers how New Zealand can prepare for cases of COVID-19 (formerly known as novel coronavirus), how two incubators are being donated to Australian shelters caring for animals injured or orphaned in the bushfires, and much more.
