Hawke’s Bay District Health Board, with the permission of Napier Mayor Bill Dalton’s family, is very pleased to advise that Mr Dalton’s medical condition has further improved and his status is now stable.

"It’s still early days, but we are very pleased Bill is now in a stable condition in hospital," said Mr Dalton’s wife Shirley.

Mrs Dalton said the family wanted to take this opportunity to thank all medical professionals involved in Bill’s care.

"We would particularly like to thank all emergency service staff involved for their swift response last Tuesday when Bill suffered a stroke, to the wonderful care he has been receiving in Hawke’s Bay Hospital.

"We are fortunate he is in such good hands."

Mrs Dalton said the family continues to be heartened by the many messages of love and support.

The family have again asked for privacy at this time and will not be providing any further updates.
