On 1 July 2022, Te Whatu Ora – Health New Zealand and Te Aka Whai Ora – Māori Health Authority became Aotearoa’s new national health authorities and Nelson Marlborough District Health Board (trading as Nelson Marlborough Health) as an entity was disestablished and became part of Te Whatu Ora – Health New Zealand.

Te Whatu Ora and Te Aka Whai Ora have their own governance structures, therefore DHB Boards and Advisory Committees ceased to operate on 30 June 2022.

Te Whatu Ora and Te Aka Whai Ora are committed to delivering a health system that is simpler and more coordinated, allowing for better and more consistent care to support all New Zealanders to live longer and have the best possible quality of life.

For information about the governance of Te Whatu Ora – Health New Zealand and Te Aka Whai Ora – Māori Health Authority please visit their websites:
