On 1 July 2022 Health New Zealand replaced New Zealand’s 20 District Health Boards as the overarching government agency responsible for health services across New Zealand, from the healthcare delivered in communities, through to national healthcare services. This means our District Health Boards no longer exist. The information on our website is being progressively updated to include relevant Health New Zealand information.
