The five South Island DHBs, through the South Island Alliance, are working more collaboratively than ever before to achieve better health outcomes for the people of the South Island.
We are solving problems together and achieving greater integration, which means we are better positioned to respond to the changes faced by the health sector in the coming years.
Through this process we have identified a need for regional guidance on issues relating to the South Island as a whole. Therefore, together, the five DHBs have developed the first Regional South Island District Health Boards Policy.
This Policy outlines the process and requirements for a policy to become regional. Regional policies must be agreed and signed off by all five South Island DHBs through existing approval processes. They are maintained by the South Island Alliance Programme Office and are applicable to all five South Island DHBs.
The Regional South Island District Health Boards Policy was developed by the South Island Alliance Quality and Safety SLA, in consultation with the five South Island DHB quality mangers.
