Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey has invited Te Whatu Ora Health NZ to a public meeting to update the community on after-hours health services.
"Waimakariri is a fast-growing area and as the local MP I am focused on ensuring local residents have access to good public services," he said.
Doocey said he hosted a public meeting in 2019, at which then General Manager of Planning and Funding Carolyn Gullery announced that locally delivered after-hours health care services would be funded by CDHB.
In 2021 he hosted CDHB CEO Peter Bramley at another public meeting, where he announced after-hours health care services would be operational in Waimakariri by 2022.
"Sadly this date has now passed and I am being contacted by many residents who are frustrated that there appears to be no clear date for the delivery of after-hours health care services in the district.
"For this reason I have invited Te Whatu Ora Health NZ to a public meeting to update residents on the status of after-hours health care services for Waimakariri."
Doocey said at the meeting, at the Baptist Church on East Belt Rangiora, on Thursday April 27 at 6.30pm, he would also be presenting a petition which was set up by local residents and calls on Te Whatu Ora Health NZ to fast-track Waimakariri’s after-hours health care services.
