Lilian Ward – Māori Health Manager
Tēna tātou katoa
Tēnei au he uri o Rongomaiwahine, Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Tuwharetoa me Te Arawa.
Ko Lillian Ward ahau.
It is my privilege to be HHB’s first Māori Health Manager and be a member of an awesome team.
I am tasked with providing an equity lens to ensure that HHB funded services contribute to equitable health outcomes for Māori and other vulnerable populations as well as supporting developments in evolving our provider network. The key focus will be to genuinely engage with Māori to co-design services/programmes.
I am also available to support our provider network with advice and support to enable the achievement of equitable outcomes and/or introduce and encourage the development and implementation of relationships between providers to enable the delivery of a wide range of wrap around health and social services.
We are on an exciting journey of development and support and I am looking forward to the ride with each and every one of you.
