Healthcare is a complicated field
and there is more than $1 billion in
funding to be allocated and
distributed to make our regional
health services the best they can be.
The CDHB board has 11 positions
available. Of those, seven are
elected by the public, and up to four
are allocated by the Minister of
Health, Tony Ryall. The four
allocated positions are usually filled
in a way designed to balance the
board s elected members, fill skill
gaps, and ensure the mix is good.
Nominations have now closed for
the CDHB board elections, held at
the same time as elections for
council and community boards.
The CDHB has received 26
nominations for the seven elected
positions up for grabs.
Six of the board s current elected
members have chosen to run again:
Ex-city councillor and aged care
advocate Anna Crighton; former Age
Concern chief executive Andrew
Dickerson; Human Rights Review
Tribunal member Wendy Gilchrist;
city councillor Aaron Keown; the
Board chair and stop smoking
advocate, Chris Mene; and finally,
ex-city missioner and hospital
chaplain David Morrell.
Clinical psychologist Olive Webb
was not included in the nominations
list for this election.
The elections will see 20 other
nominees running for a position on
the board: George Abraham, Oscar
Alpers, Sally Buck, Murray Clarke,
Allison Franklin, Tubby Hansen,
Tim Howe, Jo Kane, Beth Kempen,
Robin Kilworth, Andrew McCombie,
Margaret McGowan, Paul
