District Health Boards

The PSA is a major health union with over 15,000 members employed by district health boards. Union members are the bedrock of our public health services.

The PSA in health

The PSA is organising for good and rewarding careers that reflect the value we place on public health services and the people who provide them.

The DHB sector has its own national committee and a seat on the PSA Executive Board. This ensures your sector has a voice at all levels of PSA decision-making.

You can meet the members of the committee here.
