NZ Health Partnerships will continue to provide Procurement and Supply Chain Services to the DHBs, as well as other essential business services.
Our team put in place measures to prepare for the pandemic earlier this year. We have further stepped up plans to ensure continuity of service at this critical time for the DHBs and patients.
NZ Health Partnerships is working closely with the Ministry of Health, labs, suppliers and DHBs on critical procurement and supply chain activities.
The National Procurement team is leading national efforts for swabs, testing kits, testing platforms (technology), reagent, ventilators and Personal Protective Equipment (mask, gown and eyewear) amongst other things.
The team is engaging with suppliers to monitor and understand stock levels and working through potential contingency supply options. Our contracted suppliers are doing all they can to ensure continuity of supply.
NZ Health Partnerships continues to collaborate with the Ministry of Heath, PHARMAC and MTANZ.
