Kia ora

Just to let you know I am leaving Waikato DHB in 30 June 2020 as it is time to do some community things i.e. career change ( retire) and a new person take my place
This decision was made well before COVID 10 and I may after 30 June 2020 help out if needed at the DHB
The position has been advertised as a Senior Funding and Relationship Manager which recognises the breath of primary care as the portfolio includes PHOs, Pharmacy, Laboratory . Radiology , Transport and Māori and Pacifica providers
My heart and commitment has always been to the primary and community sector
I really enjoy the role and great relationships we have created and maintained over both the long and short term
Will still be working exactly as now until then 30 June 2020 but hope to get back into the office as opposed to my kitchen table

Ngaa mihi nui

Ruth
