In this edition of Te Whatu Ora Waitaha | Canterbury Pānui
As we endure some changeable spring weather this week, our Emergency Department and urgent care centres are still experiencing high demand. Respiratory illnesses continue to affect the community and our staff, so it is positive that there is a national focus on recruiting people to our health workforce.
Also, in this edition, springtime means more people getting their hands dirty in the garden and, with that, a heightened risk of contracting Legionnaire's disease. We share some essential precautions every gardener should take to protect themselves. Some of our staff marked World Car-Free Day last week by going ‘car-lite' and finding alternative modes of transportation for their commute to work.
There's a story about 25 Māori Waitaha (Canterbury) and Te Tai o Poutini (West Coast) staff who have started a seven-month leadership programme, and the Te Reo lesson this week focuses on poroporoaki, or farewells.
This week's quiz tests your knowledge of 90s music and we meet some more Te Whatu Ora pets.
