Interview with Newstalk ZB's Chris Lynch on 26 November 2018. 

Mike talks about the launch of 'Rising from the Rubble',  the book he co-authored with Dr Joanne Deely. 

Rising from the Rubble is the story of the Canterbury Health System’s response to the 2011 earthquakes. It gives a compelling account of those who rallied to maintain and rebuild essential health services, maintaining continuity of care for the most vulnerable – from older people to those with kidney failure – as well as dealing with the significant ongoing impact on mental health.
