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.

For further information around the strike please visit our website - www.waikatodhb.health.nz/strike Or if you have a query call toll-free 0800 276 216.

Hi Waikato,

What do you think about your nurses rejecting the latest pay offer from District Health Boards? It's now been confirmed that 24 hours of strike action will begin at 7am Thursday.

A "majority" of the New Zealand Nurses' Organisation's (NZNO) more-than-30,000 members have chosen to take industrial action - a move described as "unprecedented".

What do you think about Thursday's strike? Were you surprised they rejected the last offer? Or do you think they deserve more? Let us know in the replies!

relationship advice from the barefoot investor

Paul from Pukete

Love Me Two Times, Baby
Hi Scott,
I am 24 and earn a good income. My partner and I are getting serious, but she owes $12,000 ($10,000 car loan, $2,000 credit card) and this is annoying me as I have no debt. I am looking to use $10,000 from my savings ($70,000 in total) plus $2,000 from her next …View more
Love Me Two Times, Baby
Hi Scott,
I am 24 and earn a good income. My partner and I are getting serious, but she owes $12,000 ($10,000 car loan, $2,000 credit card) and this is annoying me as I have no debt. I am looking to use $10,000 from my savings ($70,000 in total) plus $2,000 from her next paycheque to pay off the debt. I see this as the best option so we are able to save her entire income and increase our savings for our first home. But I am also worried that, even though she says she has learnt her lesson, she will not lose those bad habits. What would you do?
Matt

Hi Matt,
You’re certainly getting serious … 12 grand of serious!
Look, there’s absolutely no way I would pay off her debt. As in none. No way. Uh-uh. Talk to the hand.
First, because what happens if you guys break up?
That’d just be awkward.
Second, because it would rob her of the opportunity to prove how serious she is about buckling down and paying off her debts herself. If she makes a go of it, that’s a good sign. And if she doesn’t, that’s probably a good sign too.
Good luck!


he makes a lot of sense you think
