Remember, if you light a fire, you are responsible for all costs to put that fire out and for any damage caused by that fire so please be careful.

Introducing the Mr Rental Games club The Latest PS3 and XBox 360 Games?* 3623780AI Assurances made on ambulance service The switch to a new ambulance provider is expected to deliver benefits to patients in Wairarapa. The National Ambulance Sec- tor Office (NASO) announced last month Wellington Free Ambulance Services as the pre- ferred candidate to provide the region's emergency and patient transfer ambulance service. NASO and Wairarapa DHB have been working together since July last year to select an alternative provider of ambu- lance services in the Wairarapa region, which have been pro- vided to date by Wairarapa DHB, currently the only district health board in the country pro- viding ambulance services for their region. NASO and the DHB are both assuring Wairarapa residents that they can expect to continue receiving a high quality ambu- lance service. According to NASO the move to a dedicated service provider will deliver benefits to patients, such as the immediate removal of part charges, and, over time, improved patient care as a result of better service inte- gration across Wellington, Hutt Valley and Wairarapa. There will also be better access to training for staff, NASO says. There will be no effect on how the public access emergency services; residents should still continue to call 111 if they need an ambulance, NASO says It is a transition requirement that all existing Wairarapa ambulance staff, including volunteers, will be offered the opportunity to transfer directly to the new service provider, therefore no jobs will be lost by ambulance staff in the transition. A robust and transparent ten- der process has been undertaken by NASO and the DHB in securing an alternative provider. Talking about the tender pro- cess National Health Board Director, Chai Chuah, said the responses received were heartening, showing that New Zealanders continue to be effectively served by ambulance providers who are dedicated to a quality ambulance service''. Wellington Free Ambulance's proposal was seen as providing reassurance of a continued excellent ambulance service in the Wairarapa. Wellington Free Ambulance Acting Chief Execu- tive, Andy Long, says they were delighted to be selected.
