Andrew Little in Dunedin

Great to have Labour leader Andrew Little in town yesterday. A full day included breakfast with the Mayor, a meeting with the University Vice Chancellor, a tour of Dunedin Hospital’s buildings, visits to local businesses Abacus Bio and Escea, a social housing discussion with Presbyterian Support, and an address to a large crowd of staff and students at the University – as well as sundry newspaper, television and radio interviews at stops along the way.

The tour of Dunedin Hospital was an important opportunity to see the mix of old and new facilities. It highlighted the desperate need to replace the aging clinical services building.  Actually there is widespread agreement that it needs to be updated. It is the last major metropolitan hospital in New Zealand to get that treatment. The real problem is that the Government is dragging its feet on committing to a full upgrade, and it keeps pushing out the planning process. That won’t do. As we saw for ourselves, the situation is increasingly dire.

Full credit to Andrew for taking the 10 hour visits schedule – on top of the travel – very much in his stride.
