In this edition of the CEO Update…

CEO David Meates reflects on some of the beneficial behavioural changes we’ve seen in our health system due to COVID-19, such as an increased awareness of hand hygiene, as well as a reduction in the spread of flu/influenza-like illnesses. However, he reminds staff not to become complacent as we enter flu season, and encourages the 29 percent of staff who haven’t yet had their free flu shot to consider doing so.

This issue also highlights the changes a number of dental services made to ensure emergency dental care could still take place under Alert Levels 4 and 3, such as using technology to connect with patients; announces the launch iSupport, an additional way for staff to log their information technology requests; congratulates first year House Surgeon David Nair for being awarded the Pasifika Medical Association’s Papali’i Dr Semisi Ma’ia’i University of Otago Scholarship; and much more.
