The submissions process for a licence to occupy a proposed site at the Onetangi Sports Park is under way with a deadline of November 30. Submissions will be discussed and heard from those who wish to speak at a hearing on December 12. If the licence is granted, the Auckland Regional Helicopter Trust will construct a permanent facility at the sports park using money raised at an event at Man O' War Bay earlier this year. The trust will build an all- weather concrete pad complete with lighting to allow the helicop- ter to provide a 24-hour emer- gency rescue service. The site was chosen from a dozen alternatives after factors such as wind, distance and accessibility were worked through with help from Auckland Council's parks adviser Gary Wilton. The submission process also covers three applications for com- munity leases at the sports park. They are for the Waiheke Island Riding Club, the Waiheke Island Historical Society and the Wai- heke Golf Club. More information on the leases and the submission process can be found at aucklandcouncil.govt.nz, council offices in Ostend, the Waiheke Library or by calling 301 0101. Quarry appeal lodged By GILL ALCOCK The future of Stoney Ridge quarry lies in the hands of the Environment Court after Auckland Council Property Management lodged an appeal against the decision by the council to refuse resource consent for the continued use and expansion of the quarry. With just one day left in the 15 working day window to lodge an appeal, a letter was hand-delivered to the Environment Court registrar giving notice of the appeal. Auckland Council Property Management applied for the resource consent to continue to use and expand the area quarried at the site at 88 Onetangi Rd owned by the council. A hearings panel turned down the application because of the adverse effects on heritage and established land uses and it believed the quarry operation did not fall within the gambit of sustainable management of natural and physical resources. The property management letter of appeal lists nine reasons for taking the decision to the Environment Court. It says the decision did not ''properly recognise the likely existence of existing use rights and the history of quarrying activities'' and that ''any adverse effects could be avoided, remedied or mitigated and therefore environmental effects will be no more than minor''. Altogether now: Staff from all three medical centres are coming together to improve integrated health care for Waiheke Island. Doctors to share notes By GILL ALCOCK CONTACTS For more information or to opt out, contact the medical centre you are enrolled with: Oneroa Accident and Emergency Centre, 132 Ocean View Rd, Oneroa, phone 372 8756, Ostend Medical Centre, 5 Belgium St, Ostend, phone 372 5005 or Piritahi Hau Ora, Tahatai Rd, Blackpool, phone 372 0022 AFTER-hours medical care is set to improve significantly'' for enrolled patients on Waiheke Island. The announcement comes from the Piritahi Hau Ora Trust and Waiheke Health Trust, which are the governing organisations for the Oneroa Accident and Medical Cen- tre, the Ostend Medical Centre, and the Piritahi Hau Ora. They also deliver the District Nursing Services and Well Child Services. Ostend Medical Centre manager Robyn Wilson says: Working together as health care providers in our small community has been a focus for quite some time. As another step to enhance our service and strengthen this focus, both organisations have agreed to start to share electronic health records for patients who are enrolled in any of the three medical practices on Waiheke Island.'' This means health care profes- sionals directly associated with the care of a patient will be able to access a patient's clinical notes even if the patient is enrolled at another practice on the island. It is expected the introduction of the programme will enhance clini- cal care by reducing delays in diag- nosis, preventing medication errors and ensuring continuity of health care. This will be especially helpful in emergency situations and after hours' presentations, Ms Wilson says. It will also significantly improve convenience for patients and con- tinue co-operation and communi- cation between local medical prac- titioners to ensure they are able to deliver patient care in a more timely and co-ordinated manner. Oneroa Accident and Medical Centre GP Jens-Peter Link says: As there has been recent news- paper coverage regarding lapses in privacy around personal infor- mation stored on IT solutions, we would like to reassure our com- munity that all steps have been undertaken to ensure the privacy and security of the health care records of our patients.'' Health care information will only be shared among the health care professionals on the island directly associated with the care of that patient. The data will be hosted in a New Zealand data centre and a secure site will be used. This system is currently being used successfully and safely in many other areas of New Zealand. The data will not be available or open to the public,'' Dr Link says. Patients who do not want their electronic health care records shared have the option to opt out of this solution by signing a form. This must be done before December 1.
