Proposed abolition of 20 DHB's

M.R.M. made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

The request was refused by Ministry of Health.

From: M.R.M.

Dear Ministry of Health,

The 20 DHB's spread across New Zealand individually and collectively employ a huge number of people.

In today's NZ Herald it was reported that; "The Government intends to make appointments for positions in the new agency from the beginning of 2022 ..."

Please can you provide me with the following Official Information:-

1. Are there going to be job losses across the 20 DHB's and if so what number of DHB employees will likely lose their jobs?

2. Will the appointees for the new agency positions be selected from the employees currently filling positions at the 20 DHB's, and if not, why not?

3. Will any of the 20 DHB's remain 'as is' but be taken in under the umbrella of the new agency? If so how many, and, which ones exactly, will this apply to?

Yours faithfully,
