A Nurse's Life

Posted by Geraint Martin on 26 May 2016 |

After recently celebrating the Midwifery and Nursing Awards it seemed timely to acknowledge these dedicated and skilled men and women who provide quality and compassionate care 24/7, 365 days a year. With nurses and midwives at CM Health numbering over 3000, they are a valued and vital part of our workforce.

How to lose your appetite, 90 per cent of your stomach and 80kg

Posted by Communications Team on 15 February 2016 |

Stuff.co.nz - Between the gobsmacking "before" and the barely-less gobsmacking "after", Nat How, a 30-year-old truckdriver of Otara, Auckland, lost his appetite and 90% of his stomach capacity. In a 90-minute, $15,000 operation in Manukau's SuperClinic, surgeon Richard Babor stapled and snipped How's stomach down from a 1.5-litre pouch to a thin tube the size and shape of a penlight, which can hold only 150ml.
