After an extensive selection process the West Coast District Health Board has appointed Chris Le Prou as General Manager of Secondary Care.

Mr Le Prou joins the West Coast DHB from the Crown Health Financing Agency where he worked as the manager and where he worked with this organisation during a review in 2004.

Chief Executive Kevin Hague said Mr Le Prou had an extensive management background and most importantly already had a sound understanding of the DHB's issues.

"He has considerable experience in working through the strategic level issues in secondary care services."

Mr Le Prou will spend a week meeting staff and orientating staring April 6th before joining the DHB full time from the end of April.
