Major reforms will make healthcare accessible for all NZers

April 23, 2021 at 1:16 PM

From Beehive.govt.nz

  • All DHBs will be replaced by one national organisation, Health New Zealand
  • A new Māori Health Authority will have the power to commission health services, monitor the state of Māori health and develop policy
  • New Public Health Agency will be created
  • Strengthened Ministry of Health will monitor performance and advise Government

Putting a greater emphasis on primary healthcare and ensuring fairer access for all New Zealanders are two of the main drivers of health sector reforms announced today by Health Minister Andrew Little.

“We are going to put the emphasis squarely on primary and community healthcare and will do away with duplication and unnecessary bureaucracy between regions, so that our health workers can do what they do best – keep people well.

“The reforms will mean that for the first time, we will have a truly national health system, and the kind of treatment people get will no longer be determined by where they live,” Andrew Little said.
