Feedback Released on Buller Integrated Family Health Centre

West Coast DHB is happy to release the 42 written submissions that were received from the public, staff and unions regarding the proposed Buller Integrated Family Health Centre.

The submissions are released complete, although names have been blacked out to protect the privacy of individual respondents.

The submissions can be read on this website - to read them now please select the link below. Copies of the submissions have also been sent to reception at Buller Health, reception at Buller Health Medical Centre, the Westport library, Buller REAP, Buller District Council and the Westport iSite Visitor & Information Centre.

The DHB apologises for any typographic errors that may have occurred when handwritten submissions were typed out.

West Coast DHB CE David Meates says, the next steps are for more detailed planning to continue on both the single site and split site options at the same time as the model of care for healthcare in the Buller is further refined.

Staff and unions will be involved throughout this phase and the public will be kept informed with ongoing developments.
