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.
