Where we fit in!
The Mental Health & Addiction Network team has a multi-layered accountability framework that feeds information up, down and across the multiple stakeholders. Although the formal upward reporting structure will change over time, it is important that key relationships with the GMs Planning and Funding and Maori Health continue to be maintained and enhanced. The Midland regional forums have changed to align to managed networks.
The lead Midland CE is Nick Saville-Wood and Phyllis Tangitu, Lakes DHB General Manager Maori Health - click here to view their profiles.
