Share your story

And go in the draw to win!

We want to hear stories about your, or a family member or friend’s, hospital experience, and in return you will go in the draw to win a Pressy Card. As the official charity of North Shore and Waitākere Hospitals, we bring support to our hospitals from our local community, and we would love to hear your healthcare anecdotes and memories.

For example:

  • Are you regularly in and out of hospital and have you got to know a specific care team well? 
  • Did you give birth in hospital and have a special story you would like to share? 
  • Have you experienced the new SCBU at Waitākere Hospital or the new Breast Service at North Shore Hospital?
  • Have you met Daisy, the Waitākere Hospital cat?
  • Or any other positive experience you have had!

Hospitals can be challenging places to be, often visited during difficult times, however every so often there is someone who makes your visit better, who goes that little bit further, or there is something that stands out that is worth talking about. We’d love to hear and share yours.  

Like our page and send your stories to, you will receive a notification letting you know you are in the draw. Feel free to tag others who you think might have a story to share. We have 4 vouchers to give away.
