Some of you will have heard the rumour, and others may have already had some involvement as we laid the groundwork – and it is true! The Southern DHB website is being upgraded!
In collaboration with WellSouth, the Community Health Council and our health care providers, we are working to produce a whole of system website that provides a welcoming virtual front door to our services for our diverse communities.
This project was an action in the Primary and Community Care Strategy and Action Plan, as part of contributing to a more accessible, coordinated health care system, so it is great to have work underway.
Over the coming months, we will be working with health providers across the district, and service areas within the DHB, to provide more patient-focused content.
Thank you to everyone who will be contributing to this.
Because the website will contain information from a wide range of health providers, we will also be developing a new logo for the website to represent the wider southern health system. We’ll keep you posted about this as it develops.
The web development team have set up this blog, so you can stay up to date with the project and find out how you can be involved.
We look forward to updating you as the project progresses.
