More information

The South Canterbury office addresses the public health needs of people living between the Rangitata and Waitaki rivers, including the Timaru, Waimate and Mackenzie Districts.

The work of the Timaru-based Community and Public Health staff reflects one of the South Canterbury District Health Board’s (SCDHB) strategic priorities “to improve the population’s health status”. Key focus areas are on lifestyle, cancer, child and adolescent health, and reducing inequalities.

Assistance in the areas of environmental health and infectious diseases is provided by two Health Protection Officers. They are also involved in biosecurity monitoring at the Port of Timaru, and health and safety assessments of Early Childhood Centres.

The Timaru office has a Community Health Information Centre, providing a range of health education resources from the Ministry of Health and other providers.
