Sector committee co-convenor, Bay of Plenty DHB

Ko Rongomaiwahine, Ngāti Kahungungu ngā Iwi

I’ve been a worksite and clerical lead delegate since 2009 and currently serve as deputy convenor for the DHB sector. I’m passionate about ensuring the quality of rights and conditions of our members is improved.

Working in partnership with an employer that favours advocating progress, positively reinforces making that goal more achievable and realistic for our local membership.

In most recent years Bay of Plenty has gained heaps of experience when it comes to transforming the workplace. 2010 we piloted in partnership with the PSA, their lean productivity model Sustainable Works Systems. Our community benefited tremendously from this model as we reshaped and improved the inconsistent patient booking system of the day to the simplified Patient Focus system we have today.

In May of this year, we launched further innovation by introducing a first in health; a PSA delegate convenor role fully funded by the DHB.  Signed and sealed with a Shared Commitment Charter, it signifies the partnership and strengthens the purpose in which the PSA and BOPDHB intend to work together; resulting in better health care for patients and employment outcomes for staff. Happy staff means better patient care.
