The service, which opens next month, has been launched as a result of the prelimi- nary findings of a community needs assess- ment survey conducted by pediatrician, Sarah Loveday. Dr Loveday was appointed in December to undertake the survey and find out how to improve the region's pediatric services. After visiting families, schools, kindergartens, plunket centres and health care providers she discovered there is a lack of skin and oral health providers for chil- dren in Horowhenua. She said children have been turning up at Palmerston North Hospital with skin and respiratory infections such as pneu- monia and eczema which would normally not require hospital treatment. Families are living in poorly ventilated and heated houses which is very bad for skin and respiratory conditions . . . and there aren't enough GPs around and a lot of families do not have access to proper health care.'' She said the eczema service is the first step of MidCentral's five-year plan which will see families have better access to affordable primary health care. Details of the plan will be made available in July once she has finished compiling data, Dr Loveday said. The service will operate out of the Horowhenua Health Clinic every Wednesday and will employ two skin specialists and three pediatricians, includ- ing Dr Loveday. Shannon man keen on career as an actor FROM Page 3 The play, which follows sev- eral generations of one fam- ily in Christchurch from 1863 through to 2011, deals with issues surrounding biology and technology and whether humans control machines or machines con- trol people. Van Echten plays two Germans; Pauli, a lawyer and accountant living in the 1800s, and modern-day Manfred, who is in the pro- cess of taking over his fami- ly's clothing manufacturing business in Shanghai. He said the roles have proven to be challenging as he has to embody two characters from different eras and create two differ- ent personas by copying the German accent, mannerisms and postures. Pauli has very correct posture and is quite fidgety, but at the same time com- municates in very direct gestures.'' He has spent a lot of time preparing for the role, watching interviews with German people and even spending time with German backpackers in Wellington. I found them [the back- packers] much more relaxed -- it was a huge difference to the way Pauli is.'' Relating to the play's agricultural theme was not hard for van Echten, who grew up on a poultry farm in Shannon with his parents and grandparents who emigrated to New Zealand from the Netherlands before he was born. The young actor hopes to make a living out of acting and plans to apply to Toi Whakaari: New Zealand Drama School. He has begun his next project, a web-based pilot called Urban Numina, where he plays a Roman god who has lost his mem- ory and has to relearn the English language.
