As nurses at Counties Manukau Health we are collaboratively leading equitable, exceptional care and experience for all.

Our DHB strategy is to support healthy communities, healthy people, whaanau and families, and to deliver healthy services. As nurses at Counties Manukau Health, we have a unique opportunity to help create a healthier South Auckland.

When we come together with this common purpose, and we all commit to bringing the best of ourselves, we can achieve amazing things for the people we care for, our patients, their whaanau, our local communities, our colleagues and ourselves.

We are very proud of being nurses here at CM Health. We are a values-led organisation which is lived in practice. We have a strong connection to our community, as many of us have  spent much of our lives here, and we want to make a difference for the people of South Auckland.

We provide incredible opportunities for learning, practice, and personal development.

Since November 2018 we have worked together to develop this nursing strategy in workshops, videos and team discussions. This nursing strategy was created with and for the nursing community of CM Health. It is important as it provides a whaariki or platform for us to work together for a common purpose. We have already started and there is much yet to do.

​As nurses at CM Health we recognise and respect Te Tiriti o Waitangi as the founding document of Aotearoa New Zealand.

This is underpinned by EQUITY as the foundation of our care. 

​CM Health's nursing strategy comprises four key actions:

  • SAFETY for all
  • We are all partners in CARE,
  • We all IMPROVE
  • We are all LEADERS of care
