Loud shirts all for a good cause
But it was all for a good cause. The team was supporting Loud Shirt Day, with money raised from the wearers of loud shirts going to The Hearing House and the Southern Cochlear Implant Paediatric Programme to help deaf and hearing-impaired children around the country get the therapy they need.
Lynne and Sym are wearing Loud Shirt Day t-shirts especially designed for this year’s Loud Shirt Day by artist Dick Frizzell.
Fourteen DHBs have now had their UNHSEIP services audited by the Ministry of Health. The Ministry contracts with Deloitte and expert advisors to perform these audits.
