Calls for a new children's hospital for Wellington

From Nine To Noon, 9:08 am on 16 June 2014

Brendon Bowkett, a paediatrician at Wellington's Capital and Coast DHB, says the current facility is too small and old to deal with growing demands and lacks a proper air conditioning system. Backing his calls for a new facility for the region are the Mayor of Porirua, Nick Leggett and Diana Marsh, a Wellington mother who's daughter is approaching the end of two years of treatment for Leukaemia. Capital and Coast DHB's clinical leader for paediatrics, Dr Andrew Marshall responds.
