Healthcare NZ Community Health continue operating in Nelson Marlborough
While our recent bid to provide Nelson Marlborough Health clients with home-based support services was not successful this time, we continue to hold a number of contracts with other DHB’s and funders (local and nationwide), supporting more than 20,000 New Zealanders. It’s something we’ve been doing for more than 30 years.
While we are sorry to have missed out on the new Nelson-Marlborough District Health Board (DHB) contract, all of our local support workers have been offered employment with the new DHB provider. We expect that where possible they’ll continue to work with their existing DHB clients – maintaining those relationships and continuity of care – something that’s very important to us. We will maintain a number of staff to continue supporting the rest of our ACC, Ministry of Health and Veteran’s Affairs funded clients. The new DHB contract starts on 26 September 2017.
People we support
For more about what this means – if you’re someone we support (whether staying with us or moving to the new DHB provider) - view our FAQs here. And if you have any queries please contact your support worker.
If you’re a DHB client who’ll be transferring to the new provider we wish you well for the future and ‘thank you’ for allowing us to support you in your home and community.
