Photo: BEN WATSON Improving patient care is the number one priority for the man in charge of two Auckland health boards. Waitemata District Health Board chairman Lester Levy was ap- pointed chairman of the Auckland District Health Board in Decem- ber. He s taken on the dual roles in the hope that both boards can work together to give patients the best possible care. Each board will be run separately and will come together when need be. We are taking down the boundaries and look- ing at the two together to see what can be done by working together. The boards have a combined revenue approaching $3 billion and employ 15,500 staff. One of the major areas Dr Levy wants to address is patient care, or lack thereof, particu- larly in Waitemata s services. He says there are sig- nificant performance issues which result in patients not always get- ting the care they need and deserve. Patients are some- times treated like they don t matter very much. He encourages staff to treat each person they deal with as if they are the person they care the most about. There is some fantas- tic quality staff and I want consistent clinical excellence. He will hold staff accountable for their actions and will con- stantly be reinforcing the need to be kind and con- siderate to all patients, he says. Dr Levy came to New Zealand from South Africa 32 years ago. In this time he s worked for a number of private and public health organisations. He has plans to mod- ernise both boards, with updated technology and refreshed attitudes. The world s changing we need to respond to it. He says demographics are changing and the health system needs to adjust to it. People are living longer and they are going to be living even longer. Dementia, hip replace- ments and cataracts will be more common as the population ages. A lot of these things can be treated. They require a lot of care and support. He says action needs to be taken to improve aged care facilities and find ways of keeping people independent. If you get it right you can change their lives dramatically.
