    Hospitals across the country are running at the minimal capacity to save lives and cope with emergencies

    Hospitals across the country are running at the minimal capacity to save lives and cope with emergencies


    Up to 70 percent of the health sector's frontline staff have walked off the job in today's nurse's strike.

    DHB National Contingency planning coordinator Anne Aitcheson says the plans are in place to keep everything running today.

    She says people are prepared and very conscious of the need to have services available for people who have no choice but to come to or be in hospital today.
