A recent Women’s Health Nursing and Midwifery award recognised Urmila Singh, Staff nurse within gynaecology. "Urmila is a truly patient orientated person, aware of cultural safety and whānau involvement in care.

Excellence in Research

Health Excellence awards

We recognise the incredible contribution our amazing people deliver to their patients through a number of different accolades, including our annual Health Excellence awards and the A+ Trust Nursing and Midwifery awards.

The project team of “Intrauterine insemination (IUI)” won excellence in Research at our Health Excellence awards.

This is the first clinical trial with clomiphene citrate to show benefit when compared to expectant management. The results offer hope to couples trying to conceive as IUI is a simpler treatment than IVF. Through this continued research we hope to show in future that three cycles of IUI is similar to one completed cycle of IVF.

We'd love to speak with you today.
