As an Auckland Health Foundation ambassador, Petra is hugely supportive of the charity, particularly the work it does to promote wellness outside of the hospital environment as well as within it.
Here Petra shares her passion for helping to advance healthcare in our communities:
“My experience of Auckland DHB is that, as well as great knowledge and world leading-practice, the teams have huge hearts. That was evident a year ago when my father was in hospital. The kindness and care he received was as excellent as the treatment. We really are so fortunate to have this facility on our doorstep. But it doesn’t just happen.
With your support and mine we can help Auckland DHB improve and grow – enabling teams to provide even better service to even more people. We have an amazing opportunity to give financially so they can give of their time and expertise – saving lives and extending the wellbeing of New Zealanders like you and me.
“As well as looking after everyone who needs their care, they are training the next generation of clinical experts to be world class. I’ve witnessed first-hand how great Auckland DHB’s education and research programmes are, so I know that any donation you can make will help them not only today, but for future generations.
Let’s continue to share the love and spread the word to encourage others to support the Auckland Health Foundation and be part of this worthy project.
Together, we can help the incredible teams at Auckland DHB make healthcare even better for you, your family and friends.”
