Rob Campbell: Health NZ chair says complaints over meetings are a storm in a teacup

View descriptionShare

Te Whatu Ora Health New Zealand chair Rob Campbell is calling complaints over meetings a storm in a teacup.

The new centralised health agency is shutting the public out of its monthly board meeting.

Campbell says it's not a DHB.

He says the former Heath Boards were required by legislation to have open meetings but also had private ones.

Campbell told Heather du Plessis-Allan creating access on a national basis is quite different to allowing a reporter at a local meeting.

“The pure logistics of it are hard, we’re not required to hold our meetings in public, and indeed, other crown entities like us don’t hold their meetings in public.”
