Chief Executive Vanessa Dudley
In January, HealthCare NZ released for consultation a change proposal designed to keep our organisation viable and
strong into the future.
A consultation process held with staff across the country has ensured the opportunity for both general input and for
direct personal discussions with those staff impacted by the proposal.
The feedback will be carefully considered before any final decision is made.
To correct misunderstandings reported in the media, the proposed changes will not see any of our local branches close
and all our services will be maintained. There are no changes to either the number of frontline clinical staff and
support workers or the work they do.
This proposal updates our administration and management systems to better support modern, effective and co-ordinated
decision-making while enabling us to maintain our strong network of branches and local connections and relationships.
