Welcome to Te Whatu Ora – Health New Zealand Counties Manukau

Te Whatu Ora - Health New Zealand 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.
