Anybody Missing doberman

Pauline from Windsor Park

I saw a doberman dog at Apollo Drive (North Shore) close to St John and Ambulance. It quickly crossed the road and went into the Bush before we could approach.

Hope you get back your baby

A newly developed facility, renamed as Kia Ū Ora – Waitematā Breast Service, was opened today at North Shore Hospital to improve access and health outcomes for patients.

The service will provide a world-class level of assessment, diagnosis and multidisciplinary treatment for people with breast cancer and breast disorders.

Breast Cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths for women in the Waitematā DHB catchment which has the largest population of any DHB in the country.

Patients have previously attended various appointments at a number of different locations across the DHB during the course of their diagnosis,
treatment and post-operative care.

“This co-located approach will be hugely convenient for our patients and will, in certain cases, mean various needs can be met on one day and in one place,” said Waitematā DHB CEO Dr Dale Bramley.

“Most importantly, it will contribute to improved diagnosis and treatment times – helping us make a dramatic difference in the lives of our patients, their families and whānau.”

The modern new unit occupies a vast ground floor space that has been completely redeveloped since its previous occupants were relocated to upgraded premises elsewhere.

It includes additional ultrasound and mammogram capability – as well as extra consultation rooms in a reconfigured and refurbished easy-to-access premises.

Breast Cancer Foundation NZ is a major supporter of the project and had representatives present during today’s opening.

“Our $1 million contribution towards Kia Ū Ora is recognition of just how important this service is,” said Breast Cancer Foundation NZ chair Justine Smyth.

“It’s crucial that everyone who is referred by their GP to the service is seen quickly so that any breast cancer found can be treated as early as possible, giving the best chance of survival.

“Going through a cancer assessment is hugely worrying and women shouldn’t have to face unnecessary delays."

Attending the opening are Waitematā DHB CEO Dr Dale Bramley, Breast Cancer Foundation New Zealand board chair Justine Smyth, Waitematā DHB board chair Professor Judy McGregor, Dr Susan Gerred.

Where did all the waterbeds go?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Did you have - or do you still have - a Waterbed? I hunted high and low for someone who still used one of the originals, but couldn't find a soul who'd own up to it.
What do you think about these wonderfully kitsch pieces of retro bedroom decor?

Hey neighbours! Are you aware that the asbestos lurking in your roofing, ceiling, cladding, floors, or fences can be hazardous to your health?

You will be surprised at how many people die each year from mesothelioma, the aggressive type of cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Most people who get this disease have been exposed to airborne asbestos particles either in the home or in the workplace and eventually developed lung cancer or other respiratory issues later in life.

Chemcare is committed to eliminating asbestos in New Zealand homes and buildings.

If you’re sure that you have asbestos in your property, you can use our asbestos calculator to get an estimate of how much it would cost to have it removed, then call us to get a no-obligation quote to complete the job.

Be safe, be sure.

Bunions affect 1 in 3 New Zealanders they can lead to pain and discomfort, which affects mobility, balance and quality of life. That’s not to mention the look of them and the difficulty of fitting shoes.

We’ve decided to run a special offer for people with bunions - “Bunion Evaluation” for only $33 (worth $85). Offer valid 12/02/21 - 12/03/21

Many doctors and podiatrists believe that surgery is the only way to fix a bunion. This is not true. Bunion surgery is painful and doesn’t address the underlying cause of a bunion, which is generally the way we walk and stand. Ideally, surgery should be considered as the last treatment option for bunions.

At Corrective Foot Solutions, we use a gentle, hands-on technique to effectively treat and correct bunions – which means there’s no need for surgery or orthotics. We use Foot Mobilisation Therapy to correct the underlying cause of your bunion by working on the misalignments in the foot, as well as strengthening the weakened muscles around the joints.

Pop in and see us at 272 level 3b Parnell Rd, Parnell, Auckland or give us a call on 092129250.

Hi Auckland,

What do you think about the newly announced festival on Motutapu?

Island Time on Motutapu is a festival to be held over the last weekend in February and is set to feature a smorgasbord of food and drink vendors and music artists.

Festival-goers will be treated to a day long festival on either February 27 or 28 on the island. Tickets range from between $65 to $85, with a portion of ticket sales going towards to wildlife conservation.

Billy Brown, the deputy chairman of Ngāi Tai Ki Tamaki, said that it is an excellent opportunity to showcase the culture of the island and for them to educate visitors about volunteer opportunities on Motutapu.
“In the end, we want a calendar of events on the island, covering sports, arts, food – all of it," he said.
