Final day of DHBs: New organisation in charge of your healthcare from tomorrow


This Friday marks a watershed moment in New Zealand healthcare as all 20 DHBs are abolished and replaced by a new nationwide entity called Health NZ. "This whole reform is about patients getting the right care, close to their home and in the right place – so that should be the main focus." These communities will also have to be assured of the necessary resources to improve health outcomes no matter where they are. Another key change will come in the shape of the Māori Health Board, which will be committed to working with Health NZ to improve health outcomes for New Zealand's Māori population. "In New Zealand, Māori people have worse health outcomes than non-Māori people," says Murton.
