Grey Power to join march

SHARE

Grey Power will be out in force to support a march against proposed funding cuts to Oamaru Hospital taking place on Sunday.

More than 1000 people are expected to attend the rally, which has been organised by Waitaki Mayor Gary Kircher and councillor Melanie Tavendale to show support for Oamaru’s health services.

In April, the Southern District Health Board (SDHB) proposed a 5% funding cut to all rural hospitals including Oamaru, which is run by the Waitaki District Health Services – a council-owned company.
