Dr Stuart Jenkins, Clinical Director for Primary Care, Auckland and Waitemata DHBs
In this talk Dr Jenkins will provide an update on resent changes in the primary care environment in the Auckland and Waitemata DHBs as well as the opportunities arising. This will include the Rural Alliance work.
Faced with the complexity of two DHBs, five PHOs, 240 general practices, and 20 urgent care centres, the focus of the Planning and Funding team has been to provide supporting infrastructure in the key areas of governance, models of care, quality, communications (including directory), workforce, and business models. While not addressing all of the issues in primary care it does allow the sector to build capacity in a more effective manner.
Dr Stuart Jenkins is Clinical Director for Primary Care at Auckland and Waitemata DHBs. He is a GP and shareowner at the Apollo Medical Centre in the Apollo Health and Wellness Centre, which he developed in 2005. This is the largest primary care facility in New Zealand and is now part of a cluster of health related facilities based at the Apollo Health Park. Stuart has previously been an elected board member for Waitemata DHB.
