What do you think about wait times for the doctor?

Mandy Te Reporter from East & Bays Courier

Hi neighbours! How long do you have to wait to see your doctor? One day? One week? Have you given up and headed to an accident and emergency clinic instead? How long have you had to wait there to see someone? We'd be really interested to hear your experiences.

Please put NP if you do not want your comments published in print.

Everything you need to know about the latest fruit fly discovery

Sarah Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

Ōtara is in a fruit and vegetable lockdown after a facialis fruit fly was found.

It's the first time this particular fruit fly - which is native to Tonga - has been found in New Zealand, and it could be devastating to crops.

How has the fruit fly discovery affected you? Are you worried about purchasing local fruit and veges from the area? Will you still go to the Ōtara markets this weekend?

To find out how to spot the facialis fruit fly, and what to do if you see one, click here.
