Buller Health is all set to reinstate it’s 24/7 acute care services from Monday, 19 December 2022. Temporary changes to how health care services were delivered at Buller Health were introduced in mid-August.
“We are exceptionally lucky to have a highly-skilled and dedicated workforce in Buller, who have done a fantastic job to ensure we can reinstate our 24/7 acute care services. We are pleased that over the past few months, good teamwork means we now have a more sustainable workforce in place, and we can return to providing the full range of health care services from next week,” says Holly Mason, Te Whatu Ora Director of Nursing for the West Coast.
“We would like to thank the Buller community for being supportive of the situation over the past few months. We appreciate that when making temporary changes to how our services are delivered because of limited staffing resources that this is not ideal. Fortunately, we have been able to continue delivering off-site after-hours services with the support of St John.
“Leading into the summer holidays, if you’re need a repeat prescription, get it sorted before you go on holiday. You can also continue helping us out by booking your routine health care appointments early,” says Ms Mason.
Remember, if you are injured or experiencing severe symptoms, it’s critical that you call 111.
