Waikato DHB NZNO nurses, healthcare assistants and some midwives will strike for 24 hours from 7am Thursday 12 July to 7am Friday 13 July Services will be severely affected during this time.

To reduce the number of patients in hospital and attending our clinics over the time leading up to and during the proposed industrial action we will be:
- Rescheduling appointments for surgery, treatments and outpatient clinics.
- Giving priority to emergency, critical care and maternity.
- Still providing some essential outpatient clinics such as cancer and dialysis treatments.
- Contacting all patients whose operations or clinic appointments are affected by the strike.

For patients remaining in the wards, these patients will receive higher level nursing cares only. Basic nursing duties will not be performed. We would really appreciate help from patients’ whānau and friends in the wards to provide support with washing, dressing and feeding.

Please save the hospital emergency department for emergencies only. If it’s not an emergency contact your GP, or go to an urgent care centre or call Healthline on 0800 611 116.
