NZRDA strike 17-20 January: Is your appointment affected?

Nelson Marlborough Health is preparing for the absence of some of its Resident Medical Officers (RMOs) during a strike from 7am 17 January until 8am 20 January.

In order to ensure the safe provision of essential services for people who are acutely unwell, we unfortunately have to postpone some non-urgent procedures and appointments during that time.

Your appointment may need to be rescheduled and we will call you on the phone to confirm this.

Please be assured that unless you hear from us directly your appointment at Nelson or Wairau hospital on 17, 18, 19 January is unaffected.

While our hospitals  and emergency departments (ED) remain open, we remind people that ED is for emergencies.

Here is a range of after-hours healthcare options in the Nelson, Tasman and Marlborough regions.

As with any other time, if you have an emergency don't hesitate to call 111.
