Join us on our journey to transform Aotearoa, New Zealand’s health service.

Aotearoa, New Zealand has a highly skilled, dedicated and professional health workforce delivering exceptional care. However, there are opportunities to make improvements. We need to build a future health system that will perform better for all of us. A system underpinned by partnership, equity, sustainability, whānau-centred care, and excellence.
Firmly grounded in Te Tiriti o Waitangi principles, Te Whatu Ora serves all New Zealanders.

We’re shaping a future health system that will be simpler and more coordinated, allowing for better and more consistent care, and that will support all New Zealanders to live longer and have the best possible quality of life.

Te Whatu Ora is responsible for improving services and outcomes across the health system and working in partnership with the Te Aka Whai Ora. We will manage all health services, including hospital and specialist services, and primary and community care.

Under Te Aka Whai Ora and Te Whatu Ora, each region works alongside local communities to develop and implement plans based on community needs and aspirations to improve the health and wellbeing of every New Zealander.

Our Purpose

Our focus is our shared goal of creating healthier, more empowered communities through delivering an equitable, integrated and sustainable health service.
