ICE CREAM AFTERNOON TEA PARTY
At our March meeting the weather was kind to us and we enjoyed eating ice-cream in our back yard. Margaret Southgate gave us a talk about Patient Advocacy, which raise a variety of interesting points for us all to talk about. As a result Edith and Noel attended a DHB Community Forum, and hope that this will be another way of keeping up with the way our needs are met by DHB services.

Waikato Mini Newsletter for December 2011
  •  END OF YEAR LUNCH: In December, eighteen members and family met for a lunch meeting at "Cafe Fresca" where the main item on the agenda was eating. My food was delicious, and I only heard compliments from others. Several members were there who had not been for a long time, and one new member came with his daughter.

  •  PPSS received a large grant from the DUNCAN TRUST, and are able to give grants to people with polio who have needs that are not being met by DHB and other funding services. The first group of grants have been made, and new applications are now being received. Is there something that you need that isn’t funded? (Not a wish-list)

  •  Have you been to Queen Elizabeth Health for a Post Polio check-up? Did you read about QE and the benefits in the last newsletter? Waikato polios are eligible for DHB funding, and your GP can make an application for you on line. The next intake of polios will be April 30 - May 11.
