Payroll disruption for Waikato DHB members

20 May 2021 ASMS

We want to thank our members at Waikato DHB for going above and beyond this week in the wake of the cyber attack which has caused major disruption to clinical services and patient care. Unfortunately it has also affected the DHB’s payroll system. We wanted to give our Waikato members a quick update. 

Due to the cyber attack many members did not receive their full pay yesterday, with items like allowances and expense claims not able to be processed. 

ASMS has been in touch with DHB management which is working through the issues.

It has told us that all banks will honour direct payments etc. It also says it is hoping to apply rough top-ups regarding allowances later today and process any necessary wash ups when the payroll system is up and running again.  

ASMS will continue to monitor the situation, but if any members have concerns please contact us on 04-4991271.
