Oamaru Hospital Launches New Website - 2nd Oct 2019

Oamaru Hospital has recently launched a new website to help improve access to information and to keep the community well informed on activities. 

This new website (https://www.waitakihealth.co.nz) has already proved effective for receiving community feedback and has assisted in the recruitment of staff.

“Members of our community have provided feedback both on aspects of their care where we could have done better, as well as positive accolades for the care received.  All feedback gets managed through our internal policies that guide how we manage complaints and bouquets” Ruth Kibble, Chief Executive of Waitaki District Health Services said. 

“People interested in working at Oamaru Hospital have also been using this site to understand more about the hospital and the services we deliver.  The website has been mentioned in recent interviews by doctors looking for permanent roles in Oamaru, some of them from overseas” Mrs Kibble said.

This website will provide up to date health advice and information. 

“We have made a commitment to ensure effective communication processes are in place” Paul Allison, Chairman of Waitaki District Health Services said.

“This website, alongside Health Forums and Media updates, will play an important role of our newly approved Communication Strategy that seeks to provide easily accessible information to our community” he said.
