Welcome to Te Whatu Ora – Health New Zealand Counties Manukau

Te Whatu Ora is the overarching organisation responsible for New Zealand's national health service and will be working closely with our partners at Te Aka Whai Ora – Māori Health Authority.

July 1st was the beginning of something special as we start working together with the goal of creating a simpler, more equitable and accessible health service.

Te Whatu Ora is the weaving of wellness:

  • Whatu is the combining together of people, resources, organisations, thoughts and actions for the betterment and wellbeing of all.
  • Whatu is also a direct reference to the pupil of the eye and the vision required of the new entity and system.
