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.

Help your children get a good night’s sleep. Here’s how

If your child's sleep is disturbed at night, it makes it harder for them to function during the day. It also raises the risk of problems with behaviour and learning.

The good news is most sleep problems can be treated or managed. There are things you can do in your home to improve how your child sleeps, and your family doctor can give advice and support.

Check out these tools to help you learn about children’s rest needs and help them sleep.
