NDHB advocates for affirmative action and actively seeks Māori into our workforce to reflect the community we serve. 

When a child is sick we still think about their other needs. It’s important that we maintain their learning and development, minimise stress and enhance their ability to cope with illness, hospitalisation and treatments. 

Our paediatric service at NDHB has a caring team of specialists from a variety of professions, including hospital play specialists.
