Following today's earthquakes, Canterbury District Health Board Chief Executive David Meates says people should check on their family and neighbours, particularly the elderly. Mr Meates says health board buildings have come through today's quake with reports of minor damage and further engineering inspections underway.
Burwood mums and babies who were in the Burwood Maternity Unit at the time of the first quake have been temporarily moved to other facilities as a precaution while that facility is checked. Any mums expecting to go to Burwood today or on Monday should check in with their midwife/LMC.
General Practices, pharmacies, after hours services and the hospital emergency department are operating as normal, with no increase in patient numbers at this point.
