Kaikoura is a 2 ½ hour drive from Christchurch, so was an ideal spot to trial remote patient consultations. Cathy Hammond, clinical nurse specialist in wound care from Nurse Maude in Christchurch worked closely with a nurse champion in Kaikoura to successfully trial a telemedicine clinic for woundcare.

Clinically and technically the trial was successful with good feedback from clinicians, patients and their families.
