Breathe Hawke’s Bay Centre Report – March 2018
22 March 2018

By Clinical Nurse Manager Julie Shaw.

Tena koutou katoa. I hope you have all been managing well with the heat we have had over January and  February. With winter beckoning it is always good to start preparing ourselves and ensuring you have an up-to-date management plan, back pocket scripts and all your medication is current. Remember it is always best practice to get a new spacer once a year. Call into your GP Practice or our office if you require one.

The Breathe Hawke’s Bay (BHB) team have had a great start to 2018. We attended a Whānau Fun Day for Tumu Timbers, these events are always a great opportunity to showcase our services but also network with our partners.

We have been fortunate to receive a grant for new technologies so are now armed with two tablets and a new projector. Debbie has been busy meeting the needs of teachers and educators by doing Asthma Friendly School presentations to several schools and preschools.

Earlier this month we were proud to be a part of the Mitre 10 MEGA Tough Kid event. Working with Mitre 10 MEGA Napier & Hastings and Sport Hawke’s Bay was a pleasure as always. We are grateful for their support and that of Rapid Relief Team Hawke’s Bay, our ambassador Ellery Wilson and committed team. It was quite a day! You can read all about it here.

Remember we are always happy to answer any queries you have or if you would like a Respiratory assessment then get in touch.
