The West Coast District Health Board is pleased to present the Maternity Quality and Safety Programme Annual Report for 2018/19.
The West Coast has had a busy year again this year as we work towards the development of a Maternity strategy that will guide us for the next five years. A broad
framework was presented to a Hui in February this year and we now continue to refine the outcomes of the feedback. This work along with the realignment of the West
Coast health system beyond maternity has prompted much discussion about how we best meet the needs of our maternity population. The discussions have also developed
into how maternity then sits alongside the other work happening particularly in the well child and mental health spaces.
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.
