As hospice grows and develops to cater for the increasing demand for specialist palliative care in the region, whilst ensuring that it is achieved in a way that provides sustainability into the future, the need to plan and manage change is a priority across the organisation.
During the early part of this year, we launched a series of change initiatives that, over the next 12 to 18 months, will focus on the following:
- Developing future-focused technology infrastructure and accompanying systems, applications and processes in core areas including data management, human resources and health and safety and wellbeing.
- Discovery activities to properly understand the key people engagement opportunities including leadership development and looking at new models of practice.
- Introducing a new organisation structure that brings together key operational and clinical functions.
These are all designed to build on the outstanding work that is happening within our organisation, and provide a ‘future focused’ NTH that will be able to ensure a sustainable level of service for the diverse needs of Tangata Whenua and Tangata Tiriti communities of the Nelson Tasman region.
A recent addition to the leadership team at NTH has been Donna Ching-Tregidga, who joins NTH in the new role of Head of Supporter Engagement and Income Development. Previously Head of Marketing with the World of WearableArt (WOW), both Donna’s commercial experience and her understanding of the importance of maintaining and developing strong supporter relationships for Hospice will be invaluable. This is especially important as we begin to meet the challenges of resourcing and funding, over the next few years. Donna joins a revamped senior leadership team ‘Te Kāhui Manikura’ which includes – Dr Jodie Battley – Medical Director; Dr Lea Galvin – Clinical Services Manager; Bruce Thomas – Head of Finance and Operations; Fiona Thomas – Head of People, Capability and Wellbeing; and me as Chief Executive.
