Waikato Hospital features – Helping hands


One of the biggest hospital campuses in Australasia, Waikato Hospital is a world in itself. Even though so many people pass through it every day, the stories of people who work at Waikato Hospital apart from doctors and nurses remain hidden in plain sight. Here journalism students from Wintec give you a glimpse of lives of the people whose little actions make a huge difference.
