Pae Ora (Healthy Futures) Bill

Proposed amendment

Dr Shane Reti, in Committee, to move the following amendment:

Clause 1

In clause 1, replace “Pae Ora (Healthy Futures)” (page 5, line 3) with “Centralising Healthcare”.

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Pae Ora (Healthy Futures) Bill by changing the title to the Centralising Healthcare Bill. This bill consolidates and broadly centralises healthcare into three key entities: the Ministry of Health, the Māori Health Authority, and Health NZ. Health NZ will represent a consolidation of all existing DHBs. The Māori Health Authority will consolidate functions relating to Māori health. The Ministry of Health will consolidate public health functions.
