A staff member

“Andrew is our Local Hero because he ensures we deliver the best service to our team, staff, whānau and patients. 

Andrew worked in Point of Care testing for COVID-19. This involves quality-checking new material, supporting Rapid Antigen Testing (RAT) inventory, training, communication. Andrew set up Rapid PCR ID Now in the emergency department (ED) which improved patient flow across the ED.

Andrew always made himself available to support the ED team with any issues. He once even drove to pick up weekend testing stock himself, when couriers were delayed due to staff illness.

Andrew goes above and beyond to support the clinical team to deliver care, which has great benefits for our patients. He’s a true local hero.”
