Heart awareness month - great recipes!

Mar 01 2019

This time of the year is heart awareness. There are many great resources on the Heart Foundation website. https://www.heartfoundation.org.nz/resources 

We have had a supply of recipe books fro the Heart Foundation which have whizzed out the door so we thought we'd make the PDFs available - please go to the website above .

Some of the favourites have been the Affordable Eats, Cheap eats, Kids in the kitchen , Pasifika cooking, Full-o-beans cookbook and the Vegetable cookbook.

Staff News : As many patients will know , Dr McCoy has now retired. In May Dr Nicki Pointing left as she and her husband moved to Kapiti.

We are excited to announce that we have recruited Dr Tricia Briscoe a very experienced GP moving down from Rotorua. She will start on Thursday 10 January and will be available to many of Dr McCoy's patients. She will be working Wednesday to Friday.

Some patients will have met Dr Eli Botella Ruiz who is in the process of transitioning to Wellington from Christchurch .  She is working Monday and Tuesdays until 11 February when she will work Monday to Thursday. She will be available for some of Dr McCoy's patients who have already seen her and Dr Pointing's patients.

As we have worked through the recruitment process, we thank everyone for their patience and apologise for the uncertainty this has caused over the last few months.
