A Canterbury Doctor is calling on the government to do better when it delivers its daily health messages to the public.
Clinical Director at Durham Health in Rangiora, Stephen Brown posted an open letter to the community and leaders after dealing with irate patients.
He told Chris Lynch after the public message went out about wider testing for COVID-19, they had patients lining up but no swabs to do the tests.
He says they were also out of the flu vaccine which patients also expected them to have.
