South Island neurosurgery reforms announced

November 2010

Neurosurgery centres will be retained at Dunedin and Christchurch hospitals but will look "radically different" under reforms announced by the Acting Director-General of Health.

Andrew Bridgman released recommendations from the specially convened South Island Neurosurgery Expert Panel at a media conference in Wellington this morning.

"What is being proposed here is a paradigm shift on how we deliver neurological services to the South Island," he said.
