The South Island Alliance Programme Office Has Moved

05 Jul 2018

The lease was up at our Wairakei Road premises, so we have moved back into the city, to the new health precinct, and closer to some of our collaborative partners.

You can now find us at:

Level 4, 32 Oxford Terrace (Canterbury DHB corporate office)
Christchurch Central

Our P.O. Box number and all our phone numbers, including direct dial and video conferencing numbers, will remain unchanged.

Information for visitors

If you are attending a meeting, please double check the venue on the meeting request or agenda. 

Getting to our new office

Frequent visitors will need to reconsider their usual travel arrangements to accommodate the longer commute from the airport (about 15 minutes in normal traffic) and central city parking.

For people unfamiliar with the new-look central city, parking can be challenging, so visitors are advised to plan their trip. The Christchurch City Council has an interactive car parking map, which is a useful way to find the location and cost of car parks. Parking is also available at The Crossing, 71 Lichfield Street – an eight minute walk from our office at 32 Oxford Terrace.

What to do when you arrive

Visitors to the Programme Office will need to register their arrival at Canterbury DHB corporate office reception on level 1. The receptionist will call the relevant SIAPO team member who will collect their visitor from level 1.


Moving out of the central city and DHB premises was part of a post-earthquake response. Canterbury DHB, our host, is now in a position where it can accommodate us again. In doing so, we will be saving money, resources and time for our Alliance partners.


If you have any queries, please contact our office administrator Aleisha Whitehead at or on (03) 378 6638 ext. 86638.
