AH+ Celebration Dinner a night to remember

The crowning event for Alliance Health Plus as we know it went off with a bang, with over 200 guests coming together to celebrate the network and the future of healthcare.

After a three year hiatus, the Alliance Health Plus (AH+) Celebration Dinner last Friday (04 November) brought together and acknowledged those who have worked tirelessly to provide the best possible support to their communities during a global pandemic.

VIP guests included Director of Pacific Health at the Ministry of Health, Gerardine Clifford-Lidstone; guest speaker Te Whatu Ora Chief Executive, Fepulea’i Margie Apa; Te Aka Whai Ora Chief Medical Officer Dr Rawiri Jansen; Labour Party MP for Mana, Barbara Edmonds; Chair of the Health Select Committee and Labour MP, Tangi Utikere; sponsors The Royal College of General Practice New Zealand represented by Dr Samantha Murton and Chief Executive Lynne Hayman; General Practice NZ Chair Dr Jeff Lowe; Ministers and their wives from the Samoan HVAZ churches, Pacific Providers and last but certainly not least, the AH+ Practice Network.

Eleven practices walked away with national health target performance awards, topped off by Queen Street Medical Centre in Ōtāhuhu who achieved the highest results across five national health targets including smoking brief advice, CVD assessment and management, 8-months immunisations, and diabetes assessment and review, as well as exceeding the national target for cervical screening. <
