Te Pou o te Whakaaro Nui has produced the third report in the annual series of DHB mental health and addiction employee profile reports. The report summarises the socio-demographic profile, length of service and FTE turnover for 8,038 people employed in 7,259 FTE positions, as at 30 June 2018.
The report reconfirms the need for workforce planning and development to address workforce ageing; capitalise on the existing workforce’s long service and experience; and continue to build on existing programmes to grow Māori and Pasifika representation in the workforce.
The report is based on information provided by the Health Workforce Information Programme (HWIP) team and describes DHB employees in the mental health and addiction primary area of work. In the future there is opportunity to begin documenting trends over time from this information.
