Key health contracts devolved to district health boards
Health Minister Annette King, Capital and Coast District Health Board chair Bob Henare and Ministry of Health officials will take part in a small ceremony today at 3.30pm to mark the devolution from the Ministry of Health to district health boards of a number of key health contracts.
