Our approach to your care
A matou whakatata ki o tumanako

Staff at Dargaville Hospital recognise that you know best how your body responds to illness and other life experiences, and what is right and acceptable for you. We would like you to continue making your own decisions regarding your health care, with our assistance and support.

We support your right to be fully informed about your health situation. Please don't hesitate to ask for more information or to question anything you don't understand. 

We encourage the support of a close relative or friend and will be happy to discuss with you how you might like them involved in your care. If your child is a patient, you are welcome to stay with your child.
