Earthquake Health Relief

Three West Coast District Health Board nurses left Greymouth this morning to assist with providing healthcare in Christchurch.

The nurses will assist in the care of people being admitted to a newly-established temporary Respite Care unit for older and disabled people, being established at Princess Margaret Hospital.

There are likely to be further West Coast District Health Board nurses going to Christchurch to help the Canterbury District Health Board cope with the additional workload and the necessity of covering for staff who themselves have been badly affected by the earthquakes.
