Our pathway towards better health

Our pathway towards better health, better lives, Whānau Ora.

Our community has asked us to build a health system where we experience high quality, coordinated care that values our time. 

During the Southern Future listening sessions in 2016, our communities told us their greatest priorities for the health system. We are working to achieve these through focusing on key strategic areas. Find out more below about each of these areas.

What have our people asked for? • better coordinated care across providers, with less    wasted time• care closer to home • communication that makes sense and is respectful• a calm, compassionate and dignified experience• high quality, equitable health services. *Southern Future listening sessions, 2016
