Supporting high-quality radiology and diagnostic services for Te Manawa Taki
Radiology is a key diagnostic tool for many diseases and has an important role in monitoring treatment and predicting outcome.
Te Manawa Taki Radiology Action Group is made up of senior managers, radiologists and primary care representatives from the five Te Manawa Taki District Health Boards. Its focus is on equal access to consistent imaging practices, and on ensuring clinically effective access criteria to publicly funded imaging. It does this by:
- being the key focal point for communication on radiology issues for the region
- providing expert clinical and service advice to promote clinical best practice
- establishing and maintaining close linkages with other services within the region, and other interested parties
- understanding trends to inform the provision of sustainable services.
