The Medical Council's aroha and manaakitanga go out to patients and whānau affected by the volcanic eruption at Whakaari / White Island. We offer special condolences to those who have lost loved ones.

We wish to acknowledge the first responders and emergency staff in Whakatane hospital and other hospitals treating the injured.

In such tragic times, we are immensely grateful for the commitment and dedication of all doctors, nurses and other health professionals.

E ngā whānau, e ngā turoro,
He mihi aroha ki a koutou katoa,
Kia kaha o koutou ngākau,
Kua heke mai ngā roimatata o Ranginui

Nāku noa
