Southern DHB Board


The Board is made up of up to 11 members. Seven are elected (three for the Southland constituency and four for the Otago constituency) and the remaining four are appointed by the Minister of Health, by notice in the New Zealand Gazette. The Minister of Health also appoints the Chair and Deputy Chair.

The Board serves for a term of three years.

DHB Board members are accountable to the Minister of Health (through the Chairperson of the Board), for the performance of the DHB.
