John Sapwell

Position: 
Contract Manager

Background
Prior to joining Manaia Health PHO I worked for a Rural Retailer for 13 years as a System Engineer. I have acquired a variety of skills and knowledge during my working life that I bring to Manaia PHO. My mother, sister and wife are registered nurses who have worked in the community and primary health in Northland so now my working in the health environment feels like a good fit.
Present Role
I joined Manaia Health PHO in September 2016 as the Contract Manager, managing the contracts between the MOH, NDHB and Manaia PHO and between Manaia PHO and our many wonderful service providers. I look forward to making a positive contribution to Manaia PHO.
