Following the general election, the Ministry of Health produced Briefings to the Incoming Minister, as is usual practice. The Briefings to the Incoming Minister, 2017 consisted of:
- The New Zealand Health and Disability System
- The New Zealand Health and Disability System: Organisation.
This briefing provides a high level and brief summary of our health and disability system, the role of the Ministry and the roles of others across the system.
Attached to this document is the Handbook of Organisations and Responsibilities, which provides more detailed information on the responsibilities and roles across the system including detail on our international links.
