The Transition Unit is about to kick off a series of information roadshows specifically for the health sector – beginning initially in the South Island from 18-29 October. 

The Future of health roadshow sessions are an opportunity to hear directly from key people involved in the reforms, gain an overview of the key components of the reform work programme, and offer a chance for questions.

Health Minister Andrew Little is planning to attend a number of sessions either in person or virtually.

The Health Reform Transition Unit has emailed invitations to a large health sector audience in the past week, and registrations to attend either in person or via a video link are already high.

We’re focusing on the South Island regions initially while we confirm options for the North Island as we monitor alert level requirements and restrictions. We’ll keep you updated as further details are confirmed.

We are acutely aware of the ongoing challenges the sector is facing given the current COVID-19 community outbreak, and the very real potential for alert level changes. We are offering attendance at the Future of health roadshow sessions to be either in-person or virtually, but we may need to re-look at our approach depending on the environment.

On the basis that everything proceeds as planned, the Transition Unit is looking forward to connecting directly with many members of the broad health sector soon.

If you think you or your health sector organisation should have received an invitation, but you haven’t seen anything yet, please email us on to let us know and we’ll forward the details to you.
