From First Up, 5:52 am on 10 March 2020

The manager of a Canterbury GP Practice says she's appalled at the amount of personal protective equipment her practice has received from the Ministry of Health amid the Covid-19 epidemic. GPs across the country are bracing themselves for a busy Autumn and Winter - and are calling for plans to be put in place for community-based assessment centres as well as clearer instructions from the Ministry of Health about what staff should do if exposed to the virus. Anne Rogers is the Practice Manager at Southside Health in Rangiora and speaks to Indira Stewart.
