This came through email about an hour ago regarding FLU clinics.I thought the community would like to know as this is the most frequently asked question by phone at the moment.

Dear Network
I wish to advise that the above clinic is coming to Railside by the Green tomorrow – Friday 3rd April.

The Clinic will start at 10.00 – 3.00pm.

It is for all people in the community aged 55 and over. Because of the high number of people needing vaccines
They will be issuing to the most vulnerable people first and then they will bring the mobile clinic back to assist with vaccinations.

People will be asked to come along in their cars, wait in line and the vaccine will be given in their cars. It will be important to obey instructions
From staff assisting and to maintain physical distancing wherever possible.

There is a lot of other information Raukawa have sent me today and if you have any further questions or queries please ring
0800RAUKAWA or email [email protected]

I want to say a big thank-you to our kitchen staff and Meals-on-Wheels volunteers. We have seen a small increase in meals to be delivered and the kitchen staff are coping really well with this increase as well as feeding the nursing staff on long days and nights.
The meals are dropped at the client's door in a chilly bin and are cooked fresh each day. Frozen meals are available for the weekend.
I received a lovely call today from a member of the Civil Defence team asking how we were going and offering me help and advice on how they can help us. In these stressful times it is so great to see our community and agencies pulling together.
Stay safe, be kind, kia kaha,
Pohlen General Manager

Welcome to Pohlen Hospital, a private 33-bed charitable trust hospital. The land and capital for the buildings was all donated, with 180,000 pounds gifted by Joseph Pohlen (to go towards the building of a district general hospital). The facility is named after the major donor.

The hospital is independent of the Waikato District Health Board (WDHB) but is governed by a Board of Trustees which represent the community, however Pohlen does hold key WDHB contracts for areas of care including Maternity,  Primary (GP Beds), Aged Care, Transitional, Palliative and End of Life, Respite and Carer Support. Therefore, if patients receive care under these contracts their care, in most cases, is free.

Pohlen has a range of in-house services and consultants that patients can access if required.

Our commitment is to our patients and our goal is to assist you and your loved ones in any capacity you require.

Our friendly, professional staff will take the time to get to know you and your family, so your care can be personalised and you can be sure that your wishes respected.

We are situated in the heart of Matamata, with lovely gardens and views of the Kaimai Ranges.  

We have single rooms with ensuites and share rooms, all of which have outdoor access.

There is also four maternity rooms and two delivery suites.

Pohlen Hospital also has strong links and connections with  local churches.
