This is a time of unprecedented change in the health sector and we have the opportunity to make lasting positive change to our health services. 

Equity. Everyone deserves the best health outcomes possible. That means appropriate services to meet everyone’s needs, and authentic partnerships with mana whenua and other communities.

Mental Health. We have the strategic and grass-roots experience needed to develop effective, accessible services for all Aucklanders, and support well-being for all.

Co-ordinated Health and Social Services. Good health comes from more than just health services. We will collaborate with other public services such as housing and education to ensure healthy whānau and healthy communities

City Vision Health has long-term expertise within the team, to provide wisdom and knowledge for effective governance of Auckland DHB.
