The Briefings to the Incoming Minister of Health and Incoming Minister for Mental Health (BIMs) are being publicly released today.
All public sector agencies and Crown Entities are required to produce a BIM following a general election.
The briefings provide the Ministers with information on the Ministry of Health’s role, purpose and organisational structure. They also give an overview of health and mental health in New Zealand, and outline current issues and opportunities in these portfolios.
These documents are being proactively released to promote openness and transparency in how the Ministry of Health serves our Ministers.
You can read the BIMs on the Ministry of Health’s Briefings to Incoming Ministers webpage.
