Leigh White – Board Member

I am a dedicated Registered Nurse with over 37 years’ experience (nursing, leadership). I have robust knowledge in differing health sectors (primary, secondary, strategic (local and national)). I have considerable experience in governance as a member on multiple Hawke’s Bay B Boards; to name a few: Napier City Council Advocacy Committee; Hawke’s Bay District Health Board Clinical Council and Consumer Council; Hawke’s Bay Nursing and Midwifery Council, National Advanced Care Planning Development Committee; Quality and Safety Commissioner on Consumer Engagement; Urgent Care Alliance and a Trustee on the Te Matau a Maui Health Trust. I thrive on challenges where my skills, knowledge and experience can be acknowledged, enhanced and utilised effectively. I have a mindset to commit ensuring my knowledge is executed with success. I believe execution is about being capable, enthusiastic, ambitious and mentally resilient enough to achieve results.  I am passionate towards caring and always looking to make a continued significant contribution to all aspects of the health population. I am highly dedicated and results orientated and by using my energy, drive and commitment will want to see health in Hawkes Bay thrive.
