Goodbye Health Link
Posted at 12:49pm Monday 15 Jul, 2019
Health Link North (HLN), an independent organisation committed to improving health outcomes for people living in Rodney, ceased operations last month.
The move to wind up HLN follows a decision by its main funder, the Waitemata District Health Board (WDHB), to instead launch a Consumer Council, which began operating this month.
The council will provide an opportunity for the WDHB to engage with the disabled, Maori, Pacific, Asian, disability and youth communities of Rodney.
In a statement, HLN said such councils had been a good tool for community engagement for many other DHBs throughout New Zealand.
