Today marks the end of an era as we close out our last official day as Counties Manukau District Health Board.
When we wake up tomorrow, although our roles, duties and day to day activities will remain the same as always - focused on supporting the health needs of the people of the Counties Manukau rohe - we will be part of something new.
July 1 is the first day we join a ‘team of teams’ consisting of 80,000 dedicated healthcare staff all under one umbrella of Health New Zealand and alongside the Māori Health Authority.
Together, we will collectively contribute to a more equitable, accessible, cohesive and people-centred system that will improve the health and wellbeing of all New Zealanders.
We are immensely proud of all that we have achieved as Counties Manukau District Health Board and together we will take the spirit of manaakitanga and kotahitanga along with our tremendous commitment to the people of Counties Manukau into the future of the new health system.
