Changes to GP visits at TToH

Shayne Jeffares from Te Taiwhenua o Heretaunga

An important message for whānau about changes to GP visits.

At Hauora Heretaunga, we’re always looking for ways to make it easier for whānau to get the care and support you need -- when you need it.

So, from June 1, there will be no more walk-in queues for whānau wanting to see a GP urgently.

All you need to do is phone Hauora and ask for a call-back by your GP.
Your GP will ask you some questions.
They might be able to give you all the help you need over the phone, and save you a trip to Hauora.

If not, they will arrange for you to come and see them –
or someone else in your medical care team.

This change is to help us ensure that whānau get to see the right person at the right time.

We look forward to working with you.

The Team from New Zealand Red Cross

Fun fact… it’s 537 steps up Baldwin Street in Dunedin – that means you’d have to walk up it almost 19 times to get 10,000 steps! Thanks to Hannah, our legendary Community Fundraising Coordinator for stepping up to the challenge.

We still have plenty of New Zealand Red Cross Cups to give away. All you need to do is sign up to Red Cross Journey, be one of the first 100 participants to raise $100 and we’ll send you a KeepCup!

Red Cross Journey is our annual fundraising step challenge - with a difference. Walk 10,000 steps a day for 21 days and learn about the journey of someone involved with Red Cross while raising funds to help people in need.

For more information or to make a donation, visit: www.redcrossjourney.org.nz...

Thank you for your support.

Are you the new Masonic Lodge Grand Master?

The team Reporter from Hawke's Bay News

Hi neighbours - The Waipawa Masonic Lodge is for sale, and current owners are hoping new owners will continue to run the b&b which operates from the front section of the home.

Built in the 1800's, it was initially two empty halls which were then lovingly turned into a beautiful home and b&b. "It's a completely unique building," says owner, Colin. "But we've got to face facts. It's too big for two people."

Have you visited the lodge? Would you consider being the new Grand Master?
