In this edition of the CEO Update

Today marks the beginning of Mental Health Awareness Week and Peter encourages us all to take time to kōrero. Canterbury has successfully reached half a million COVID-19 vaccinations and with 107 clinics now operating across the province, that number will continue to grow. The South Island transplant team recently carried out their 1000th kidney transplant at Christchurch Hospital, almost 50 years on from the very first in the city. Peter also shares the news that Christchurch is getting a seventh MIQ facility and congratulates Fiona Pimm on her appointment to the new interim Māori Health Authority.

Also in this edition, we see a collaborative clinic offer vaccinations to Rakaia residents, construction begins on 42 new Ranui House apartments and details of a new health doctorate being offered by the University of Canterbury.
