Upper Hutt Leader : June 22nd 2011
14 UPPER HUTT LEADER, JUNE 22, 2011 Hutt Valley Health Highlights June 2011 Board Talk Many of you will have heard about the initatvetoreshapefourHut Valley Primary Health Organisatons (PHOs) into one for the whole Hut Valley. I'm pleased to announce that this process is on track. Primary care funding for general practces will fow through the new Te Awakairangi Health PHO from 1 July 2011. I signed the funding agreement with PHO chair Sally Webb last week. Ropata remains involved with the new PHO, though they aligned with the Cosign network in Karori shortly before this consolidaton process started. The beneftofworkingwithasingle PHO is the ability to share excellent practce across the Valley, and avoid duplicaton, partcularly in management. The new Chief Executve of the new PHO is Michelle Meads, who has a long history of successful management in the health sector, most recently as the Chief Executve of the Rural General Practce Network. Michelle has held senior management and governance roles in primary care, including former Trustee of the Greater Wellington Health Trust, the Board of WIPA (now CompassHealth) and Kapit PHO. I'd like to thank the out-going PHOs for the excellent work they have done, and their willingness to share this in the interests of our wider populaton. I understand the amalgamaton process has involved robust debate, to ensure that innovatve projects and the focus on those who need services most is not lost. I look forward to regular reports on the progress of the new PHO, and the DHB, in improving the health of our populaton.
