This 2020/21 System Level Measures Improvement Plan was drafted prior to the initiation of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The West Coast Health System’s current focus is on implementing our pandemic response in line with Ministry of Health directives, adapting delivery of health care to maintain essential services and ensuring we continue to prioritise support for our most vulnerable populations.
It is anticipated that as we move from the response phase to the recovery phase, our high level priorities will remain unchanged. However, there is likely to be a purposeful delay in progressing some actions and work so that resources can be directed to areas of higher priority.
Where capacity allows, our alliance groups are assessing their work plans and identifying which focus areas are of high priority. This will inform the development of a recovery plan that will highlight any substantial changes in the actions, timeframes and selected contributory measures in the West Coast’s 2020/21 System Level Measures Improvement Plan.
