Clinic avoids shocking end

Despite the cracks caused by the 2010 earthquake, the Christchurch HepC Community Clinic continued to operate. Then came 2011 and it all came tumbling down – literally.

BUT the Clinic continued to operate, moving first to Receptionist Mickey’s home, then a Portaroom and then to an industrial area.

The Clinic became a lifeline, providing vital and practical support to their clients.

The earth may have separated, but not the clinic and their clients.

Today, they have a new and stable home and play a major role in the provision of HepC care and are a shining example of what can be achieved against the odds.
