Neurosurgery campaign nears goal

04:18, Nov 28 2012

The Chair of Neurosurgery campaign has only $63,503.19 to go before the $3 million goal is reached.

The announcement comes just 10 months after the campaign to retain the neurosurgery unit for the south was launched.

The $3m allows the position of a chair for the unit to be funded indefinitely, regardless of changes in government health policies.

Campaign manager Irene Mosley said it was certain the target of $3 million would be passed before Christmas.

The latest donation from the Dunedin Casino Trust of $50,000 led to the new total of $2,936,496.81 this week.
