A fly in health team is operating in Hawkes Bay and Wairoa to meet the medical needs of those cut off by no road access. Health NZ says the team, is a bit like a Flying Doctors service and four flights a day are operating into remote areas of Wairoa to help people who need access to Hawkes Bay Hospital. Meanwhile Associate Professor of Rural Health at Otago Uni Dr Garry Nixon says Cyclone Gabrielle has shown up that rural health services are struggling at the best of times and when a major event like a cyclone occurs services and even communications are hanging on by a thread.
