A number of appointments to key interim leadership roles have been made to maintain momentum as we get closer to 1 July.

These roles will provide continuity and leadership across the sector while we recruit leaders, transition into the new organisations, and develop new operating models that will enable us to deliver services that are nationally planned, regionally delivered, and locally tailored.

The interim appointments include Health New Zealand interim executive leadership roles, interim regional directors and interim district directors.

“Getting the right people around us and building a strong leadership team as we embark on this change is critical. Riana and I are fully committed to the very thorough recruitment process that is underway for permanent appointments”, says Margie Apa, Chief Executive Health New Zealand.

Over the next few months, the functional and operating structures that sit under the tier two national leadership roles will be evolved and developed as part of a design process.

Roles for Health New Zealand and Māori Health Authority are currently being advertised.
