Baxter Foundation helps Shine respond to victims of domestic abuse at Auckland Hospital

Thanks to Baxter International Foundation, Shine can now respond better and faster to hospital patients who screen positive for domestic abuse. Baxter is funding a new hospital-based Domestic Violence Social Worker role within Shine beginning this month, for two years.  The new Domestic Violence Social Worker will be based at National Women’s Health, Auckland City Hospital and boosts the longstanding partnership between Shine and Auckland District Health Board (ADHB).
