Waitakere Hospital Community Services Open Day

Bridging the information gap between hospital services and services provided in the community, Waitakere Health Link continues to host two Community Services Open Days to enable hospital staff to increase their knowledge of local health services available to patients in the community. Hospital staff can share this knowledge with patients and their families when they leave hospital, so families feel supported to access health services in the community.
