South Island Regional Health Services Plan

Our 2019-22 South Island Health Services Plan identifies the opportunities that will make a difference and deliver changes for our population that are best for people, best for system. It lays out the Alliance's priorities and intended work for this year and in the longer term. 


Regional Outcomes and Equity Report 2018/19

The Regional Outcomes and Equity Report 2018/19 brings together a range of data from various sources to measure performance against our South Island Alliance Outcomes Framework and priority focus areas (2018–21). The intention of the report is to establish a baseline dataset for regular reporting and update at regional level across a wide range of health specialties. It is also intended to assist with defining strategies and activities to address future activity and challenges, particularly in achieving equity.


Telehealth Strategy for South Island DHBs

The five South Island DHBs have agreed on a consistent regional approach towards the delivery of telehealth services - Telehealth Strategy for South Island DHBs (August 2019).

The recommendations are also available separately here.
