Non-urgent patients asked to keep emergency department free

Neighbourly.co.nz

Non-urgent patients are asked not to show up at Hamilton's emergency department unless they have a health emergency.

Waikato Hospital is so full that some non-urgent surgery is being postponed. People who are unwell but don't need to go to ED can visit their GP, local urgent care centre, or call Healthline 0800 611 116.

Those who need immediate or urgent help should dial 111, or go straight to the Waikato Hospital Emergency Department.

Poll: Is HCC's Animal Control working for everyone

Liz from Glenview

The Neighbourly community has the chance to help our Deputy Mayor Geoff Taylor and Councillor Sarah Thomson look into how Animal Control (AC) functions in the community. Geoff and Sarah have been informed of our horror night/morning (29.30/12/2019) where Two dogs roamed and mauled Four fur babies. Both are pet owners and would have liked better results for the families of the cats.
Ibanez is still missed and familiar noises are still heard, his gravestone is under the trees, one of his many watch possies. He is only one of many animals, not just cats but rabbits, gineua pigs and even lambs that get attacked and no justice. All animals should have the right to be on their own property and not attacked. Animal control should collect evidence but they don't. If you have a suggestion on how improvements can be made then please go ahead only comments will be forwarded no names. If you think otherwise then let us know too.
I know where the dogs are. There is no gate and dog is visible from road. Animal Control have said no dogs live there. The dog that lives at this place barks at everything even if you stand across the road. The night Ibanez was attacked and killed there was no barking.
