What a wonderful summer it looks like we are going to have. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a big thank you for choosing our practice for your Chiropractic care. As always, I hope you are feeling more healthy this December than you were last December despite ticking over another birthday!
We have had a very busy year and implemented many changes to the practice. We have seen the successful implementation of our online booking system which has proved to be very well used over the past 12 months. In August we moved to electronic patient records after 16 years of doing it old school. Our ACC filling and billing system has also moved electronic. This has led to faster handling of patients’ response time if they have been accepted for their injuries or require an extension to their claim. In October, we completed a successful triannual audit from the NRL (National Radiation Laboratory) that our machine and systems were tip top.
Dr. Hayes and I continue to speak to business and community groups on the health crisis we are facing with regards to the models of health in front of them and the procrastination people face in taking care of themselves. We are seeing more and more Aucklanders’ under growing levels of stress. Our presentations cover potential solutions they can take and we tailor them to the audience. These were very well received in 2019. Let us know whom in your organizations we need to contact so we can help more of the people you know. Contact Amelia@mtedenchiro.co.nz for more information.
A big thank you from Dr. Brian and I for the kind thoughts, words and prayers we received recently. In October, we lost our dear mum to Alzheimer’s disease. She was a remarkable woman. She was married 55 years, raised five kids, was a helper of sports teams and community groups and worked full time. She taught us the magic of people. How to be kind to them, to be loyal to them and how to make people smile. Our little mum Janette was the most magic of them all.
This year we say farewell to some amazing staff members and welcome two new members to our team. We wish Aria Dooner well as she heads off on her OE via Sydney into the new year and we welcome Bea Cathcart whom has just returned from London where she worked in Chiropractic for two years.
In sending one to Ozzie we have also gained an Ozzie. Kim Fairfax joins us from Melbourne. Kim is new to Chiropractic and Auckland so please make her welcome and give her a hard time.
We are super excited to wish Lydia happy graduation in becoming Dr. Lydia McLean. Lydia responded to an ad for one off baby sitting job 7 years ago. She became our Family nanny right up until this week and worked as our Saturday assistant for the past 3 years whilst she has been a student. She won just about every award a Chiropractic student could win. Good Luck Lydia you will be an asset to the Chiropractic profession and we will miss you dearly.
