Women's Health Bus reaching rural Southland & Otago

From Afternoons, 1:15 pm on 4 July 2023

Gynaecologist Dr Helen Paterson was used to seeing women travelling for hours to get healthcare and decided something needed to change.

She set up 'Betty' the bus to take the services to the women instead and has been 'on the road' for the past four years.

Dr Paterson talks to Jesse about the difference she and Betty are making in ensuring women are getting the check ups and healthcare they might otherwise miss out on.
