Health Needs Questionnaire

There has been an excellent response by West Coast residents to the survey regarding priorities for the District Health Board with over 800 responses received.

Public feedback has requested that the response time be extended to give more people the opportunity to submit their opinions. The questionnaire, which folds into a freepost envelope, can now be be posted or dropped off at District Health Board facilities in Westport, Reefton, Hokitika or Greymouth no later than Friday 22 October.

The short questionnaire was delivered to all households on the West Coast with the Messenger on 22 September. Extra copies of the questionnaire can be obtained by selecting this link, or from DHB facilities in Westport, Reefton, Hokitika or Greymouth.

Dr Carol Atmore, Chief Medical Advisor encouraged everyone yet to respond to spend a few minutes and fill out the questionnaire as community input is very important in identifying the Health needs of the West Coast for the District Health Board.
