Summary of Consumer Council Meeting – May 2022
This month the Consumer Council heard about the work that is being undertaken by the Hamilton City Council regarding their Disability Plan that will provide links and information for the disabled community in relation to facilities and accessibility within the Hamilton area. It also includes work that is being proposed within the Hamilton area for upgrading some facilities to be friendlier for the disabled community. Waikato DHB is one of the partners in this project.
The Council also heard about what is happening within the Asian and Migrant community with regards improving communications related to their care.
An update was provided to the Council around Covid. One of the key factors and focus for communications is vaccinations, not just Covid vaccinations but also those that relate to measles, mumps, rubella and childhood vaccinations, to be ready for the winter.
