Prominent Nursing Leader Seeks Third DHB Term
Registered Nurse and sitting DHB Board member Fiona Samuel is standing for a third term for the Wairarapa District Health Board.
Fiona has been working at the coalface of health for 22 years and her experience spans a wide range of areas including emergency department, general practice, Maori health, management and more recently aged and disability care.
‘Moving into my third term my focus continues to be on ensuring Wairarapa people continue to be able to access equal, safe and quality health care.’
‘We must demand, promote and expect the highest standards of care for the elderly, with children and youth also being at the forefront of our thinking – for me that is just a given - they are our future’ says Fiona.
‘Times are changing in health and here in Wairarapa we must support and develop our local workforce and maintain local decision making. Around the board table I am never afraid to ask the hard questions and now more than ever we need a strong voice, stability and continuity’.
Voting papers will be issued from 20 September with the end of the voting period being 12 October.
