RE Official Information Act request WCDHB 9306
I refer to your email dated 6 May 2019 requesting the following information under the Official Information Act from West Coast DHB regarding Maternity Ward staffing.
1. How many consultants/senior doctors are rostered on and physically present on your hospital maternity wards on Saturdays and Sundays and between 10pm and 8am during the week?
2. If consultants/senior doctors are rostered on to work in the ward on the weekend, what times do their shifts start and end? (ie, is there someone there at all times?)
3. What times are consultants/senior doctors rostered on until during the week? (ie, is there someone there at all times?)
4. Why are/why aren’t consultants/senior doctors present/not present on the ward at all times?
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.
