There's a new body bringing together primary health care providers and representative agencies.

A summit of primary health care leaders decided to form the new federation and appointed former health minister Dame Annette King as its first chair.

Dame Annette says the aim is to provide an inclusive platform for health and care integration with the people of New Zealand at the heart of its objectives.

She is putting together an establishment board which will include Maori health leaders, pharmacy, allied health, midwifery, nursing, and NGOs as well as PHOs from Cape Reinga to Bluff.

The initial objectives are expected to include:

- Advocating for models of care;

- Supporting members to partner with health practitioners, NGOs and health consumers in the planning, design, delivery and evaluation of integrated health care services;

- Presenting a united voice for the sector working together to create solutions and share innovation;

- and leading and implementing innovation and system change.
