Radiography staff are preparing to strike again next week for a third time.
Striking will include both full and partial withdrawal of labour and is scheduled to take place from Tuesday 29 th October to Monday 4 th November. It will not affect ultrasound services.
Wairarapa District Health Board has detailed plans in place to ensure it can continue to provide the best possible care for the Wairarapa community during the strikes.
A small number of imaging staff will provide a limited service for patients to meet urgent need. X- rays for acute emergency and ward inpatients, and acute GP referrals will be available.
“We have skeleton-staff rosters in place to manage any urgent need during the strikes,” Chief Medical Officer, Shawn Sturland said.
“Together with the union we are organising on call cover for urgent CT scanning, as per life preserving services requirements.”
“Patient appointments have had to be rescheduled,” Shawn said. “While it is unavoidable, we know this is extremely inconvenient for people waiting, and we do apologise for that.”
“Some elective surgeries have also been rescheduled.”
“We are doing all we can to minimise the impact of the strikes on our patients,” he said.
“Strike activity puts people and systems under pressure and we are grateful for the hard work being put in by the planning team, and for the continued support of our staff.”

Passengers using Wellington Airport can expect to be bussed to their aircraft during a billion-dollar revamp.
The 20-year redevelopment will also involve the airport effectively flipping its international and regional terminals. The northern terminal will be used for regional flights instead of the current international flights and the main terminal will be extended to the south and redesigned to cater for international and domestic flights. The airport has also confirmed the $31 million purchase of Miramar golf course, with the land to be used for additional aircraft parking.

Hi Neighbours, while waiting for the next Rugby World Cup match would you jump on board a real life Mario Kart?

When we heard that it was possible to experience real life Mario Kart in Tokyo with Maricar, we just had to visit. Join us as we dress up as Mario, jump in our go-kart and cruise through Tokyo. We speed past Roppongi, Tokyo Tower and the super famous Shibuya crossing. We didn't get the chance to throw any green shells or banana peels but this is definitely one of the most fun experiences in Tokyo.
