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.
APPROPRIATENESS OF FOCUS FOR THE COAST
In identifying contributory measures for the Coast the SLMF provides an opportunity to focus on some key issues the Coast is facing in improving the health of our communities. When reviewing the pool of measures available there was therefore a focus on those where improvements would make the greatest impact on the overall wellbeing of our communities.
