Last week Acting Chief Executive Andrew Brant welcomed Director General of Health Ashley Bloomfield to Christchurch, where he met with teams across the Canterbury Health System and was taken on a special tour of Waipapa. With only a week to go until the first inpatients are welcomed into Waipapa, Andrew encourages readers to sign up to the Waipapa newsletter for the latest updates. He also shares the resources available to order or print to help promote the soon-to-be new location of our Emergency Department and acute services and wards.

This issue also looks at how the Canterbury Health Laboratories' scientific officers are at the forefront of NZ's COVID test service, welcomes the latest group of graduates from the Gerontology Acceleration Programme, pays tribute to the Neonatal Nurse of the Year, promotes the importance of reporting medicine side effects this MedSafetyWeek, and much more.
