We have recently had discussion with Poutiri Trust who advise they are establishing pathways for rangatahi to become more involved in the health sector. This includes rangatahi participating at a Board level, and the establishment of their own hub. In addition they have emphasised that they exist to service people no matter which iwi affiliation and are keen to offer local services and health support to Waitaha whanau.
The Trust is keen to understand the future position of Waitaha Hauora given the departure of GP services from Te Puke. We will follow this up at the next Waitaha-Hui-A-Iwi and keep you posted.
