Posted on: 06/08/20

“The Patient Support Fund is providing much needed support to patients across Northland,” said Dr Nick Chamberlain, Northland DHB chief executive.

“Since coming out of Level 4, our social workers are identifying patients who are experiencing intense financial stress. COVID-19 is having a ripple effect for many whānau in the community. We know that there are sub-standard living conditions throughout Northland especially in isolated communities, so this fund has been able to alleviate some of the pressure and hardship being experienced. The fund supports older people with getting basic living requirements such as warm clothing, heaters and food.”
