Sue Miller from the Helensville District Health Trust is leaving and recruitment is underway for a replacement.
Health Trust Chairperson Erica McKenzie says “Sue has been wonderful to work with and a real driver for change and innovation and we will miss working with her.”
In her time with the Trust Sue has led a number of initiatives including the contract to run the Kaipara College Tuck Shop, implementation of a quality framework and Health and Safety plan for the Trust, and the engagement of a public health registrar to complete a Health Needs Assessment for the South Kaipara community. She has also focussed on making the community centre at Te Whare Oranga ō Parakai self-sustaining and a hub for community education and wellness.
Sue Miller says after much deliberation she and her husband have decided to relocate from Rodney to Northland.
“I am no stranger to Northland, so it seemed like the logical place for us to move to,” says Sue. “Unfortunately, it means my time at Helensville District Health Trust has been short, but I’m sure the Board will make the right decisions going forward.”
A role for a new Business Manager is being widely advertised and Erica McKenzie says the Trust is looking to attract “an energetic, passionate and strategic leader who can help us achieve our vision of being ‘The Healthiest Rural Community in New Zealand.’”
Sue leaves the Trust on 5 January 2018.
