Health System Change

Our health system is changing to create a more equitable, accessible, cohesive and people-centred system that will improve the health and wellbeing of all New Zealanders. The workforce is acknowledged in the change as the tūranga (foundation) of our system.

The vision for the workforce is one where health and care workers are valued, supported and well-trained, supported by shared values, better long-term planning, and collaboration between health organisations.

A message to the health workforce – Hon Andrew Little

A key part of the change for workers is the introduction of the health charter which will lay out the values for the system to support the workforce to do their best work.
