Counties Manukau Health to offer free consultations at 16 clinics to relieve pressure on acute services
Media release | For the past 10 days Counties Manukau Health has been dealing with significant pressure on acute services.
The Auckland region is currently experiencing high volumes of Emergency Department presentations which are impacting on waiting times. Clinical Director of Middlemore Hospital’s Emergency Department, Vanessa Thornton, is urging the community to come to the ED only for emergencies, including injuries which threaten life or limb.
News 11 March 2021 | As confidence has been restored in Counties Manukau Health (CM Health), a Crown Monitor is no longer required to oversee its governance.
News 8 March 2021 | At Counties Manukau Health, pregnant women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) diagnosed between 20 – 28-weeks’ gestation and with no other high-risk factors are now be cared through an alternative and new pathway led by an obstetrician with expertise in this condition.
Starting Tuesday, 9 March, there will be some major work going on throughout CM Health to upgrade our phone system.
With the Alert Level 3 restrictions in place we are concerned that some people in our community who need urgent (same day) care are not getting it.
