Minister announces DHB chairs and deputies


Confirmation of District Health Board chairs and deputy chairs were announced today by Health Minister Annette King.

"This is the first formal step towards creating a more open and accountable health system for our communities since the passing of the Government's health and disability legislation earlier this month," said Mrs King.

"The boards will come into effect officially from January 1 next year, though some responsibilities will be devolved more gradually than that."

It is expected that the boards' first public meetings will be held in February.

Mrs King says she is pleased most chairpersons of the Hospital and Health Service (HHS) boards have made themselves available to stay on to lead the new District Health Boards (DHBs).

"I think it is important we have as much continuity as possible heading into the first board elections in October 2001," said Mrs King.

Most of the new board appointments have now been confirmed, though the Minister will make further appointments to some boards early in the new year.

Gordon Campbell: On The RWC, And The Op Burnham Inquiry

Testimony was given that damning evidence had been culpably ignored, lost or (deliberately?) mislaid. The systems for handling secret material from our allies were – to be charitable – only loosely observed.

Moreover… vital evidence was only belatedly made available to the inquiry, and former NZDF officers later found to be central to the events under scrutiny were strangely missing from the original witness list offered by NZDF. In short, last week’s cross-examination of the military’s former top brass demonstrated in detail that the NZDF had consistently misled its Ministers (and the wider public) for years, over the impact of our military activities in Afghanistan.
