From Morning Report, 6:14 am on 26 March 2019

The head of a network of Christchurch family doctors says the health system in the city is bending under the weight of yet another massive blow. Pegasus Health is a GP network delivering care to more than 440 thousand enrolled patients in the community. Its chief executive, Vince Barry, says the entire system, comprising hospital and community care, is strong and resilient. But he also told RNZ health correspondent, Karen Brown, that after the quakes, measles and other challenges, they are now definitely hurting.
