Tawa and Linden Medical Centres' CVRA Breakfast

Mar 19 2019

On Saturday March 2nd we held our first CVRA breakfast at the Tawa Community Centre.

 Invitations went out to our Maori and Pacific Island patients aged 30-40 who had not had their Cardiovascular Risk Assessment.     26 patients of our attended the breakfast.

Staff from Linden Surgery and Tawa Medical Centre together with Te Huri, Anne-Maree and Sarah from Compass Health (our PHO) provided them with a health assessment.   Dr John Langham gave a talk on heart disease and the implications that it can have on a person’s health journey.  The team pitched in to provide everyone who attended with a delicious healthy breakfast.  Cliff who has had an unexpected cardiac medical event, spoke on his health journey, sharing his first-hand experience, a valuable insight for patients and staff.

We were delighted at the enthusiasm of the participants which made this event a great success.
