Chauvel Pays Tribute to Glensor

Media Statement

Chauvel Pays Tribute to Glensor

News that Peter Glensor has been removed as chair of the Hutt Valley District Health Board (HVDHB) is a loss for the Hutt Valley, says Labour List MP based in the Ohariu electorate Charles Chauvel.

"Peter has given long and loyal service to Hutt health services. As a resident of the Western Hills, he has been a champion for the innovative and effective delivery of health services here" said Chauvel.

Glensor, who is also a member of the Wellington Regional council, has been demoted to Deputy Chair of the Hutt Valley Board, after previously serving as the Board Chair.

"Peter has done an excellent job as the Chair of Hutt Valley DHB, and his re-election to the Board just over a month ago confirms that the people in the Hutt Valley agree."

Virginia Hope, an elected member of the Capital and Coast District Health Board, has been appointed chair of both that board and the HVDHB.

"It is disappointing that Peter's replacement by someone elected outside of the Hutt Valley by this Government makes him the first victim in what appears to be a stealth plan to amalgamate the boards without public consultation. "
