As part of the New Zealand celebrations, Women's Health Action runs the Big Latch OnTM, held throughout the country on Friday. Each year women and their babies gather together and latch on at 10.30am to try to break the record for the most women breastfeeding simultaneously. An event is taking place in Wairarapa. Wairarapa Plunket area manager, Ester Read, says that deciding to breastfeed your baby is one of the most positive steps you can take towards ensuring they get the best start in life. Breast milk is the perfect food for infants and provides babies with all the nutrition they need for healthy growth and development. It's the original fast food -- it's always fresh and delivered at the right tempera- ture plus it's free and readily avail- able. Breastfeeding is a skill that requires learning for both mother and baby and there's lots of support available for mums. PlunketLine (0800 933 922) is available 24 hours, seven days a week, or mums can talk to their local Plunket nurse or visit a Plunket family centre where staff and other mums can offer support and information in a friendly and relaxed environment.'' The Big Latch OnTM is at: YMCA, 371 Queen St. Patient data to be available online FROM Page 20 If patients do not want their health information shared in this way they can tell their general practice, write to a free-post address or freephone 0800 SCR MMH or 0800 727 664. However, taking part in this has real benefits in terms of their care. This new system will provide doctors and nurses with better information in settings where patients haven't planned on presenting, such as emergency departments,'' says Elaine Brazendale. The DHB, the PHO and Compass Health (which have managed the project) see this as a significant improvement for patient care,'' says Tracey Adamson. The system was launched across the Wairarapa in July. It is to be rolled out in the Capital and Coast and MidCentral districts this year. Van Dyk debates to win Golden girl: Netball star Irene van Dyk puts forward her argument during a debate in Greytown. The Greytown Community Sport and Leisure Society was thrilled to have netball star Irene van Dyk participate in a recent fundraising debate. Held at the Workingmens Club, the event was a sell-out and a resounding success. ''The most important thing is not to win, but to take part'' was the topic up for debate. On the for team, Viv Fauvel got the debate off to a flying start with a superb performance that had the audience in stitches throughout. Rick Long, against, then showed up as the master of the one-liner and skilfully attacked the opposing team with some well-directed wit. Kevin's yellow card on Rick went unheeded by MC Alistair Spierling, who did a tremendous job. Having enjoyed successfully embarrassing the opposition, Rick then turned to his own team and left no stone unturned in embarrassing them too. Yes, Rick was a real team player but it was a truly hilarious performance. Regional councillor Gary McPhee, against, Mediaworks radio host Brent Gare, for, and Sport Wellington's Kevin Wilson, for, together with Irene van Dyk, against, were the other debaters. All added colour and spice to the debate: ''If you don't want to win then why do they keep the score?'' seemed like a fair question from Gary. However, Irene brought the house down with a master stroke by suddenly producing her Commonwealth gold medal and championship silver medal and asking which one the audience preferred. Although the team of Rick, Irene and Gary were ultimately judged winners it didn't really matter. It was enough that they participated. The real winners were the audience who were fortunate to have enjoyed a wonderful evening's entertainment. Irene's willingness to get involved, mix and mingle, sign autographs and have photos taken was outstanding and appreciated.
