NZSG Executive are Hard at Work

By NZ Gastro Office | Posted: Friday April 8, 2022

Our Executive has been doing a lot of mahi since our last newsletter in June

The Executive Committee and many dedicated NZSG members have progressed many projects these past two months. We've shared a few in this panui.

Here are some other key pieces of work: 

  • In conjunction with NZAGS we have given extensive written feedback to Te Whatu Ora after earlier hui.
  • We have progressed with a Sustainability working group
  • The Society's inaugural Strategic Plan has been finalised, and will be sent to members under a separate correspondence
  • The Executive and R-EXIT committee continue to manage all the complexities of major organisational change
  • Applications for Match 2022 have closed and work is underway in the selection process. April-Mae has done a power of work ‘back of house’ to streamline the Match process
  • Our Equity working group continue to progress their important mahi
  • An IBD Medication Action Group, led by Dr Estella Johns is hard at work to communicate with Pharmac and work out how NZSG can strategically approach current and future applications
  • The annual reporting for 2022 has begun and we will be reaching out to members for reporting at our ASM
  • I attended the Budget 2022 announcement by Hon Peeni Henare on investment in our Māori and Pacific health workforce and have reached out for further information on applying for funding.
