Dr Karen Poutasi has been in the job six weeks.
She's aware other DHBs around New Zealand also have problems...
Like the Counties Manukau and Canterbury DHBs - which haven't had their financial plans signed off by Health Minister David Clark.
Poutasi says she'd be happy to share her learnings with others as her team rebuilds a successful DHB.
She says there's undoubtedly challenges to overcome - but she's confident the DHB can be turned around by 2022.
