HealthShare’s regional planning function provides expertise to undertake service planning and reporting of regional activity, as specified by the Midland District Health Boards (DHBs) chief executives and board chairs.
The Midland Regional Services Plan aims to bring a regional perspective to planning and service delivery to improve health and wellbeing outcomes for people living in the Midland region.
It is produced annually with key stakeholder groups including Midland DHBs' general managers planning and funding, chief operating officers, and general managers Māori health, clinicians, regional clinical networks, community, primary, and secondary service providers, and DHB staff.
