The Hawke's Bay District Health Board plans to appoint its first director of nursing for Maori Health Services.
DHB nursing director Chris McKenna says the new position will give the successful applicant a chance to make a difference to the health of Maori in the region and help boost the number of Maori nursing staff.
She says the decision to create the new job is part of the DHB's commitment to providing appropriate services for all its patients and improving the health of people in the region.
Ms McKenna says the appointment of Maori nursing directors in other regions such as Northland and Auckland has proved very successful.
She says the new nursing director will provide support to give Maori better access to health services.
