New Zealand Health and Disability System Review

9 April 2019

The Minister of Health, Dr David Clark, has announced a wide-ranging review designed to future-proof our health and disability services.

The panel will seek independent advice and analysis and engage with DHBs, primary care, health professionals and the public in developing its recommendations.

The review panel will then provide an interim report by August 2019 and a final report by 31 March 2020.

1. What are the most important values for our future public health and disability system?’

2. Think about how the best health and disability system for New Zealand might look in 2030. How would that be different from the system we use today?

3. What changes could make our health and disability system more fair and equal for everyone?

4. What changes could most improve health for Māori?

5. What changes could most improve health for Pacific peoples?

6. What changes could make sure that disabled people have equal opportunities to achieve their goals and the life they want?

7. What existing or previous actions have worked well in New Zealand or overseas? Why did they work, and how might they make things even better in the future?

8. What are the most important changes that would make the biggest difference to New Zealanders?
