Geraint Martin - Healthcare: identifying symptoms & fixing healthcare - what’s the prescription for leaders?

June 17, 2018

The current chief executive of Te Papa Tongarewa who graduated in modern history and science at the University of Birmingham and is adjunct Professor at the Auckland University of Technology and Victoria University in Wellington speaks on process and problem in the New Zealand and International healthcare systems. Geraint began a career in the National Health Service in the United Kingdom, rose to chief executive and lead a redesign of the Welsh health and social care system before coming to New Zealand and spending a decade running a major District Health Board in a complex multi-ethnic community with deteriorating building assets, rapidly expanding needs and increasingly demanding cost reduction targets. He talks of the difficulties and issues of governance and management and the complexity of the health systems in populations that are aging and facing bigger demands with an emphasis that is now moving to personal health management.
