Disability action plan

The Canterbury and West Coast Health Disability Action Plan has been developed with people with disabilities their family/whānau, providers of disability services and our alliance partners from across the health system.

The Plan will be implemented with the ongoing engagement of all these key stakeholders using existing processes, and through developing new ways of working together.
