Your organisation has probably received information from MSD on the requirement to hand over your clients’ personal information or lose funding. SSPA does not accept that MSD needs clients’ personal details to ensure services are meeting clients’ needs. It is an imposition on organisations built on the promise of confidentiality. We are particularly concerned that it will deter people from seeking the help they need. We also doubt MSD’s assurances that its information systems are secure.

SSPA and ComVoices will continue to press the government for a pause to work through the concerns and find an acceptable solution. Thank you to all those who have written to the government to tell them why this demand for identifiable client information would be bad for their organisation. Please add your voice if you haven’t done so yet. You can write to any or all of the following, either by email or posted to Parliament, Wellington.
