Moving to in-house service

LETTER

Re: Hospital grounds a mess, October 4 letter.

I agree that Gisborne Hospital grounds are in need of an upgrade and we are on to this. We are moving back to an in-house service after we recently went out to tender for the grounds contract. We are setting up the staffing and equipment to do the job required at the moment.

In the interim, we have relied on assistance from staff and contractors to provide a minimal service, of which we are appreciative. It will improve. We know how important a well-kept environment is for people coming to the hospital.

However, in one part of the hospital, there is another reason the lawns have not been mowed. (See photo.)
