East Care’s 24/7 primary health service is critical to the East Auckland Community, providing medical help to thousands of people over the last 24 years that it has been operating.
Unfortunately, two years ago Counties Manukau DHB cut funding for the overnight service, meaning East Care has had to run this service at a loss. This coupled with staff burnout and losing key operational staff has forced East Care into a position where they cannot continue operating overnight.
As Local Members of Parliament for East Auckland representing Botany and Pakuranga we are calling on Counties Manukau DHB to step in and start funding this critical service once again.
With a population the size of Dunedin and growing quickly, East Auckland is now the only part of Auckland without a 24/7 primary health service.
Please sign this petition to tell Counties Manukau DHB to urgently step in to help keep this service going for our community.
