Nelson Marlborough Health News and Notices

Welcome to Te Whatu Ora, Health New Zealand, Nelson Marlborough

As part of the Government’s changes to health services, all District Health Boards are now part of one united entity.

It’s important to note that healthcare won’t change immediately – when people need care, they will still go to the same providers and the same hospital that they do now. 

As well as the interim District Director, Nelson Marlborough, Lexie O’Shea, we will have an interim Regional Director, Te Waipounamu, Peter Bramley, who will support the area. Under these arrangements, delegations for decision making are in many cases the same as for the former chief executives and Boards.
