Southern Cross launches advisory group

Southern Cross Health Society has announced the establishment of a Māori governance advisory group in a first for New Zealand’s health insurance sector.

Thursday, December 19th 2019, 9:22PM

The Māori Advisory Governance Group will work alongside the leading health insurer with the goal of helping to improve health outcomes for Māori.

Chaired by Precious Clark, the eight-member body includes iwi leaders along with community and health sector representatives.

Chief executive Nick Astwick said that as New Zealand’s largest health insurer, Southern Cross Health Society recognised the opportunity to work with Māori and iwi to effect change.

“Southern Cross is deeply committed to empowering Kiwis to live their healthiest lives and the advisory group is vital to helping us achieve that. As the market leader in private healthcare, we are perfectly positioned to positively influence the ways in which care is delivered to all New Zealanders.”

Clark said the formation of the advisory group represented a significant opportunity to work collaboratively to improve health outcomes across the nation.

“In order for our health system to be as responsive as it can be to the needs of Māori, it’s vital it encompasses Māori modalities of care. It’s essential that Māori receive culturally appropriate and supportive care to ensure the best possible health outcomes.

“The formation of the advisory group is a pioneering step in the right direction towards Māori being confident that their particular health care needs are met and understood in both the public and private sectors.”

The group is part of a wider Southern Cross Health Society strategy focused on meeting Māori health needs.
