Lippincott New Zealand Instance Survey

It has now been a year since Lippincott was introduced in the South Island, four years in Midland and for Wairarapa and Whanganui DHBs, together with a growing number of community organisations, it is just a matter of months.

We wanted to know what the impact of Lippincott has been and felt that users of Lippincott, were best placed to tell us this.

We therefore recently invited users of Lippincott New Zealand Instance to provide feedback on their experience of using Lippincott. The survey included all 12 regions who currently have access to it and was undertaken in June 2016.

Read about the results of the survey.
