The West Coast DHB’s Public Health Plan is a companion document to the West Coast DHB Annual Plan.
It presents the public health outcomes that the West Coast DHB’s Public Health Unit (Community and Public Health) works towards, as well as key priorities for the 13 programme areas under which this work is structured.
The System Level Measures Framework was introduced by the Ministry of Health in 2016/17 and encourages a system-wide approach to improving health outcomes.
It presents a core set of national outcomes for the health sector to strive towards with the opportunity to identify a set of local contributory measures, aligned with each of the national outcomes.
The West Coast District Health Board is pleased to present the Maternity Quality and Safety Programme Annual Report for 2017/18.
The West Coast has had a busy year again this year building on the work of the past years. The report last year has been shared widely and has prompted more discussion about how we can continue to improve the maternity system for our mothers and their babies. These discussions have sat alongside the wider discussions within our DHB about the challenges of a rural / remote rural DHB the length of the South Island and how we provide health services equitably. In this case we have been discussing how we provide maternity services and how we have to develop this work capacity among other colleagues particularly in our remotest parts of the DHB such as Haast as an example.
This Annual Plan has been prepared to meet the requirements of the New Zealand Public Health and Disability Act, Crown Entities Act, Public Finance Act, and Ministerial expectations set in 2016/17.
Please also see the System Level Measures Framework 2018-2019 – West Coast Health system Improvement Plan, which is to be read in conjuncton with the West Coast DHB Annual Plan.
