WCTO Tamariki Ora Collective

He mihi tēnei ki ngā kaimahi o Tamariki Ora

Your insights, your aspirations and your concerns about the current state of the Well Child Tamariki Ora services have been heard, and a call is being put out to those working across the sector to come together to map a collective pathway forward.

WCTO Tamariki Ora Collective

As it stands, we have now completed all our wānanga across the motu. We would like to thank all kaimahi and providers who joined in on the in-person and kupu hui topa wānanga from 2021 to 2022. We are currently in the process of collating all the insights, feedback and wishes of all those who participated to be submitted in a final report to the Ministry of Health. 

Again, the idea behind this project and the formation of a national collective body/group is to;

  • Amplify Tamariki Ora providers’ voice, and therefore Māori and Pacific families;
  • Support actions that address workforce capability and capacity;
  • As a key first step to supporting the ongoing development and transformation of Well Child Tamariki Ora service;
  • Support communication between the Ministry and Tamariki Ora providers.

What next?

As mentioned throughout the wānanga, we will now be collating all the data collected to present in a final report to the Ministry of Health in the coming month. If you’d like a copy of any of the previous reports or the final report, please do not hesitate to ask. Contact Tia Reweti-Saunders for more information.

We couldn’t have done it without you

To all the clinical leaders, nurses, midwives, health workers/kaiāwhina, Vision Hearing Technicians, administration staff, cultural support staff, and volunteers. We thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules to take part. If you missed out on any of our wānanga and you’d like to voice your concerns, please feel free to submit your insights, thoughts and/or feelings to Hāpai te Hau Ora or Tia Reweti-Saunders for support before the 5th of March 2022.
