Your ideal health system surveyed
The Health and Disability System Review website invites the public to share their thoughts through an online survey until the end of May. Responses can be taken in te reo Māori.
The panel and its advisers
- The health and disability system is under scrutiny. Thousands of pages of strategy documents and status reports – including last November’s report of the Government Inquiry into Mental Health and Addictions – must be absorbed into the reviewers’ thinking.
- Helped by a small analytical team in Wellington, the Health and Disability System Review is costing $9.5 million over two years.
- Panel members are: health economist Heather Simpson (chair); Waikato/Bay of Plenty Cancer Society chief executive Shelley Campbell; University of Otago Māori health researcher Peter Crampton; Mercy Radiology and Healthcare Holdings Ltd chief executive and head of digital health Lloyd McCann; former Nursing Council chair Margaret Southwick; former planning and funding boss for several DHBs Winfield Bennett; and former New Zealand Post Group chief executive Sir Brian Roche.
- Māori advisory group members are: consultant and Auckland and Northland DHB board member Sharon Shea (chair); University of Auckland nursing associate professor Terryann Clark; South Auckland’s Te Kaha O Te Rangatahi Trust chief executive Takutai Moana Kemp; Waitemata DHB chief executive Dale Bramley; Te Rānanga o Ngā Maatawaka, Christchurch, chief executive Linda Ngata; and University of Otago Hauora Māori associate professor and Invercargill GP Sue Crengle
