CDHB to unveil plans for healthcare in Waimak at MP’s public meeting

Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey is urging Waimakariri residents to come along to his public meeting to hear directly from the Canterbury District Health Board’s new Chief Executive, Peter Bramley, on its plans for healthcare in Waimakariri.


Doocey’s public meeting is on Thursday 17 June at 6.30pm in the Rangiora Town Hall Main Auditorium.

“My offices are often barometers of issues that are concerning our residents. Lately, I’ve been receiving a number of queries around health-related issues, including around the possible impacts that centralisation of services could have on our promised afterhours facility.

“My offices are getting many calls from our over 65s, who are seeking clarity on the roll-out of the Covid-19 vaccine in our area.

“I’ve also asked Peter to brief our community around the issue of flexibeds at our Rangiora Health Hub.

“I know how important it is for our community to be able to bring their questions directly to the CDHB and I’m delighted Peter has accepted my invitation to come speak directly to our residents.

“I urge everyone to bring their questions, and let’s talk health!” Doocey said.
