Home care cut without warning - Hutt Valley residents

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 08:44:00 +1200

Some Hutt Valley residents say they are shocked to learn their home-help is being cut back without warning. One caregiver says seven of her clients have had their care reduced, but they knew nothing about it until she told them. Her employer, Access, which is contracted by the DHB to look after 1,500 people in their homes, insists no-one would have their allocated care cut without being reassessed.

Dunedin lawyer frustrated by fake names in state services

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 08:39:00 +1200

A Dunedin barrister says there's no way to hold ACC's Remote Claims Unit to account when its staff members use fake names. The use of pseudonyms by staff fearful of client abuse has come to light at the Ministry of Social Development. Now ACC admits its staff also use pseudonyms. Dunedin lawyer and ACC researcher Warren Forster tells us it's too hard for people to build relationships with their case managers when fake names are used.

Cricket ODI in Napier cancelled, McLean Park not ready

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 08:50:00 +1200

A delay in re-turfing Napier's McLean Park has meant it's lost a cricket one-day international in February. It's not the first time McLean Park has lost matches - it was dropped five years ago from the test roster because of drainage issues. Napier City Council's chief executive Wayne Jack says it's very disappointing, but there have been factors beyond their control. The turf is grown in Auckland, where there has been a lot of rain, he says.

The much criticised coal industry is confounding its critics by refusing to lie down and die. Defunct state coal miner Solid Energy's assets have been bought by Talleys and Bathurst Resources in a $55m deal, and an entirely new mine is planned for the Buller River, 12km upstream from Westport.

Final leaders' debate a subdued showdown

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 06:40:00 +1200

With just two days to go before New Zealand goes to the polls, National has surged ahead of Labour in RNZ's Poll of Polls. National has a 44 percent average, compared with Labour, at 40 percent. The Greens are now clear of the 5 percent threshold, with 6.4 percent, but New Zealand First continues its slide, sitting just above 5 percent. At last night's debate both Jacinda Ardern and Bill English agreed the election would be close and that the volatile polling pointed to there being a lot of undecided voters who would be making up their minds in the final days of the campaign.

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 06:18:00 +1200

A visiting Canadian water scientist says he is at a loss to understand why all drinking water in New Zealand is not treated to avoid the risk of illness. Dr Steve Hrudey from the University of Alberta attended the Water New Zealand Conference in Hamilton. He studied an outbreak of E coli in the water supply in Walkerton, Ontario in 2000 when seven people died, and the campylobacterosis outbreak in Havelock North in August last year which affected many people.
